Parish church. Medieval, considerably restored 1873-4. Nave, chancel, south
chapel, west tower, north porch. Flint rubble with stone dressings;
plaintiled roof. C15 knapped flint tower with 4-stage diagonal buttresses to the
west and a crenellated parapet enriched with flushwork; the tracery to the belfry
openings is missing. 3-bay nave with 2-light windows in Perpendicular style, mostly
renewed C19; C14 nave doorway. C15 porch with 2-light square headed side windows. In
the south nave wall is a semi-circular headed niche containing a much-weathered coat
of arms, and below a tomb chest to John Felton (1703). 2-bay chancel with C19 windows
in Perpendicular style. To the south of the chancel is a C15 3-bay chapel. Interior.
2-bay chapel arcade; to the west of the chancel arch is a further bay, perhaps later,
with carved heads against the capitals. The east end of the chapel is used as a vestry,
the doorway having carved label stops. The chancel arch and all the roofs were renewed
mid C19. Good arched-braced nave roof of 4 bays with intermediate trusses between;
each main truss carries a crown post braced one-way to the collar purlin; there are
also side purlins and arched wind-bracing. Boarded wagon roof to chancel. Restored
piscina in chancel and another simpler one in the chapel. C15 carved octagonal front
on a 2-stepped base, the upper step with quarterfoil tracery to the riser. A screen
below the tower arch incorporates 2 traceried panels from the dado of the former rood
screen. The furnishings are largely mid and late C19, but 6 C15 poppyhead bench ends
remain in the nave. On the north west nave wall is a Cl7 painted wooden panel
commemorating 2 members of the Duke family. In the chapel is a good marble wall
monument by Chantrey to 2 members of the Sparrow family who died in 1809 and 1818. 2
early C16 effigy braces to Nicholas Wrenne and his wife have been remounted on the
north chancel wall.
