porating some C14 work in tower. Rubble, plain tile roofs. Three stage tower
at west end of nave and adjoining wide south aisle, deep north porch and tran-
septal north chapel, shallow chancel. Crenellated tower with squat spire and
small spire to stair vice. Windows generally in C14 'decorated' style; remains
of Norman window built in by north door. Interior: nave in four bays, arch-
braced truss roof, south arcade 4-bay cylindrical red granite columns with
C13 type leaf carved capitals; triple shafts in granite to corbels at chancel
arch; and short shafts on floriated corbels to chancel roof. C19 stone pulpit,

Ancient font bowl, circular, unlined; one of group of Norman fonts in the

by Waller and Son of Gloucester, was almost completely destroyed by fire
shortly afterwards, but rebuilt by Waller, 1881.
