Victorian gabled porch. S. aisle has coped gable and square-headed
traceried openings with hoodmoulds and corbel heads. Chancel has lancet
windows, with 3 lancets forming the east window. Blocked tiny north
doorway, and a single window in the tall and buttressed N. wall - inside
nave arcade of 2 bays, double chamfered round arches in round piers and
responds. Outer shafts are very slender. The nave is high for its length
and has a good crown post roof. Chancel arch, C14 double chamfered arch
