Entrance bay set back to right. East elevation has a gabled bay to right with a three-light shallowly pointed C14 window with cusped ogee tracery. The south side has an external staircase leading to the upper gallery.

INTERIOR: the nave and aisle are entirely covered by an upper floor or gallery. The ceiling has finely moulded beams. Stud partition between nave and aisle, with moulded upright. Stud partition to the east, in the form of a screen with three-lights either side of the entrance through to the chancel.

Box pews in the chancel and aisle. Rough open seated pews in the nave and south aisle, possibly C17. C17 pulpit, reading desk and clerk's pew, uniquely placed behind the altar. Wall paintings, late C13, on the north wall. The Annunciation, Visitation and Nativity. Restored in 1931. On the south wall an illegible painted text.

C15 octagonal stone font with shields and carved figures in high relief around the bowl. Solid base, cut away at the angles and with colonnettes. Badly worn incised tomb slab leaning against the west wall. Fragments of medieval stained glass in the tracery lights of the north window. The gallery has timber-framed walls and C19 tiered pews.
