The Norman church largely re-modelled in C17 and more recently. The church
consists of a west tower, 3 bay nave, chancel and modern south porch. The
tower is red brick, Flemish bond, about 1780, with corner piers (channelled
rustication and moulded stone caps one brick dated BE 1732); arched belfry
windows, oculi to ringing chamber; clock to west above a Venetian window (repaired
1932); pointed doorway below. The nave walls are restored: brick with stone
dressings to Decorated style windows; south-west corner has English bond buttress;
gable end of nave English bond too. Chancel south wall restored and a stepped
east window inserted. North wall has circa 1600 brickwork with black diapers.
Tudor arch doorway and flat-headed 3-light brick mullion windows (with arched
heads).
Interior: interesting: 3 bay pointed arcade, mid-C12 on scallop capitals,
squat polished stone piers; plaster removed from 2 arches to reveal brick
work below, centre one has billet hood mould; arcade which has been shortened
in C16 divides nave and north aisle and is built into south wall. C16 brick
chancel arch, also pointed. Roofs repaired, aisle appears to have a mediaeval
tie-beam roof with windbraces and arch-braced collars. South door has key
stones of reused C12 sculptured material. The chancel and north chapel separated
by slender oak columns. A number of memorials particularly in south wall of
chancel (George Parrott, died 1780 by William Tyler; Henrietta Hertwell, died
1818, by Chantry; and some C19 Bingham tablets. North aisle wall has a memorial
tablet to Thomas Arnold (his son Matthew is buried in the churchyard) C19 font
in Norman style).
Further Bingham vault in churchyard. Also a number of food headstones, 4 chest
tombs close to north aisle wall and a double body-tomb John and Sarah Chandler,
died 1821 and 1802).
