- I

C12, C15, and mid C19. Norman church of nave, chancel and western tower (of
same width as the nave), with an added north aisle together with a small vestry
on the north-east corner (restoration of 1850 by Woodyer ). The chancel has on
each side 2 deeply-splayed windows with zig-zag ornament surrounds; the nave
windows have plate tracery above coupled cusped lights on the south and small
lights to the aisles (1850). The nave arcade has pointed arches resting on 2
massive octagonal piers with simply-decorated caps. The main feature comprises
3 exceptionally decorated Norman arches: the narrow chancel arch has a series
of decorative motifs, including zig-zags, and rests on attached columns: the
tower arch has mouldings and a plainer treatment of attached columns: the south
doorway is very ornate, with zig-zag stages and acanthus motifs, again resting
on attached columns. A small north door has been re-used in the later aisle.
The south porch is C15. Furniture includes a Norman font, a Jacobean pulpit,
C18 altar rails, and several wall monuments. Externally, there is a red tile
roof, flint walling with stone quoins, a cement finish to the lower part of the
massive tower, which is surmounted by a restoration rubble stone bell stage
having round-arched coupled openings and a pyramid roof.
