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,
cinquefoil ogee heads above traceried transom with trefoiled lights below.

Interior: chancel - C20 roof. Fittings: C17 pulpit, 4-panelled sides with
primitive incised decoration. Plain floor slabs dating from late C17 and
early C18. Brass chandelier, part C15 and part C19 donated by Ivor Bulmer

of its pre-Reformation character, including large areas of thin protective
