of a nave and north aisle. 5 bays in all, perpendicular and intersecting tracery.
Gabled south porch with early C17-looking doorway with moulded label. carved
spandrels and niche over (therefore presumably pre-1558); moulded holy water strip
inside porch. Blocked Norman south door, roughly central with blind tympanum.
Large gabled C15 chapel to south . Double plastered wagon roofs. Square plan
font removed from Wedgeworthy Farm (which like Shillingha , Erth Barton and others
may have had its own chapel).
