Church. 1842. By SC Fripp. Squared Lias rubble with limestone
ashlar dressings and a slate roof.

Small, round-arched windows include a group of 3 in the E end

a pyramidal roof and a round ashlar staircase tower at the NE
corner with a beehive roof and a round-arched door at the
bottom. Clocks on N and S sides of tower, over a blind arcade
on the S side.
The N aisle of 3 bays separated by pilasters, beneath a
weathered corbel table and parapet. W porch has a coped gable
end with 3-window range, and E-facing door with a semicircular
arch, round responds with cushion capitals in a gabled
entrance, and 2-leaf door with strap hinges. SE porch below
the tower has a door with a shouldered lintel and single
light; S elevation as the N. The W end is 5 bays, 1:3:1
separated by buttresses, with higher middle lights with
beakhead stops to the hoods, and a small rose window flanked
by blind single lights under the apex. Celtic cross finial.
INTERIOR: stone Norman-style reredos and small piscina in the
apse, which is separated from the single-bay chancel by a
square section arch. Similar chancel arch, on carved
Romanesque corbels; organ loft to the N. 5-bay nave arcade of
round piers with semicircular pilaster strips on the sides,
cushion capitals and semicircular arches, springing from a
carved corbel at the chancel end and terminating in a respond
in the W wall. Braced queen-post nave roof, and plain aisle
trusses resting on the arcade pilaster strips. Fittings
include a stone Norman-style font. A fine example of the
Norman Revival of the 1840s, the style being carried through
to a good interior.
