Unusual building of C14, with arcade and roof of circa 1562 and C17. Sturdy castellated west tower with a batter and narrow cusped lancet window. South porch. Very sturdy proportions. Interior very original, with 2 naves divided by a two-tier arcade, the upper arches standing on the apex of the lower ones. The arcades do not reach the ridge, but there is a king-post open roof (not identical) over each nave. Mural monuments of early C19. Wordsworth bust in relief 1851 by Thomas Woolner.
