Parish Church; C12 with extensive late C19 restoration. Coursed, squared rubble

stone copings and kneelers; bellcote with iron gable-cross to west end.
Originally 2-cell plan with south aisle added and gabled porch rebuilt in 1886.
Narrow slit window with semicircular head on north side of chancel probably

guttering. Reset C12 south door has plain jambs; small carved figure to either
end of shouldered lintel, blank tympanum with chevron decoration to voussoirs.
2 fragmentary inscribed Roman stones and part of medieval grave slab are built
into inner porch walls. Internally, original chamfered semicircular chancel
arch survives; late C19 octagonal arcade pier and responds. Late C12 font at
west end of south aisle has octagonal bowl (recut?), with moulded underside, on
shaft with zig-zag decoration; moulded necking to chamfered base.
