Originally the C15 parish church, largely demolished circa 1748. The tower
and part of the north aisle remained but the rest has been skilfully reconstructed.
West tower of sandstone with crenellated parapet. String courses, angle buttresses
and polygonal staircase turret. Church windows generally Perpendicular style.
Small 2 bay chancel. Inside, a carved C15 capital remains at the west end
of the nave arcade. Said to have been founded in C13 but some Norman fragments
on a window sill.
