Coursed limestone rubble, some ashlar and lined stucco. Western

doorway has a deeply moulded rectangular surround with trefoils
in the spandrels. Hood mould with figured stops. Above the door

aisle with plain parapet has C19 3 light windows with panel
tracery, one to both ends and 5 to the side, set between stepped
buttresses, all in C15 chamfered surrounds. 5 three light C15
clerestory windows now with C19 cusped tracery. The red brick
facetted chancel has a plain tiled hipped roof, with plinth and
dentiilated eaves. A blank east window with ashlar key and
impost blocks, matching side windows. South aisle matches the
north, with one blank side window, 3 windows and a single
buttress. Shaped rainwater hopper dated 1775 on the clerestory.
Interior. 5 bay nave arcades, the north arcade has reused C13
clustered shafts, annular capitals and double chamfered arches.
The south arcade has octagonal shafts, bell moulded bases,
annular capitals, one with hobnail decoration, 2 double chamfered
arches and 3 with a chamfer and roll moulding. The third columns
from the west end have large bases of the earlier shafted columns
which formed the original crossing. Fragments of interlocking
trefoil frieze built into the wall above. The tall tower arch
has octagonal reveals, and double chamfered arch, the outer order
being continuous. c.1200 5 lozenge shaped pillars with clustered
and some collared shafts to deeply moulded C13 chancel arch. The
C15 nave roof of 5 bays survives with moulded tie beams,
principals, demi figures to sides and plain corbels. Dentillated
cornice with rosettes to chancel. Fittings. Some reused C15
tracery on the choir stalls. Late C18 painted texts to reredos.
Charity board dated 1794 in north aisle. C15 octagonal font on
shafted base, blank shields, in quatrefoil panels to sides, on
tall contemporary base. Also a C14 octagonal bowl, much abraded,
having traceried panels with cusped ogee arches and shields.
Octagonal stone pulpit dated 1881. Monuments. In the aisles 3
C18 broken pedimented wall monuments. In the north aisle a C14
black marble ledger slab to Adam of Frampton and his wife, in low
relief depicting the deceased under cusped and brattished arches.
Records in the Chancery Court refer to proceedings between 1426
and 1432 where Roger Derrys, a London mason, was sueing for
payment following the rebuilding of Church tower and nave. The
chancel rebuilding was carried out at the same time as the
refronting of the Rectory, now Wyberton Park, by the Rector Dr.
John Shaw.
