Norman, late C13, C14 and C15. Built of sandstone rubble with dressed sandstone
quoins and jowls and roof partly of Horsham stone and partly of clay tiles. Chancel
with South Chapel, Central Tower, Nave with Aisle and South Porch. The original

of the Nave are of this period. The Chancel was enlarged in the C14 and the South
Aisle, now the Nave, was added in the late C13. The South Chapel, now the Chancel,
was built by Agnes, widow of William Richard Saunders about 1480 and the South Porch
was also added in the late C15 and restored by William Burgess in 1858. The South
Porch has a stone sundial dated 1741. Crown post roof. C15 parclose screen. Late
C13 wall paintings in the South Aisle of the Nave. Brass in Chancel. The churchyard
has a good series of C18 chest tombs, some having sculptured marble panels, C19 oval
bodystones early C19 headstones with palm fronds and acroteria motifs or cherub
motifs and wooden headboards. (See Nairn and Pevsner "The Buildings of England.
Surrey" pp 119-121).
