south porch, chancel and north vestry now porch. Nave: roofless, with two
window openings to eastern end of north wall; C12 single round-headed light
to west and C13 trefoiled light to east. Two similar C13 single-light windows
flank segmental-pointed-headed doorway to south. Chancel: south side contains
large traceried window mutilated at head and sill, late C14, four lights,
