Rubble facings, freestone dressings, stone slate roofs, gable parapets with crucifix finials and twin bellcote openings to W end; chimney to E gable of S aisle. 3-light perpendicular E windows under rectangular drips, barred lights. 2-light traceried windows under pointed hoods to W front (with vertical masonry joint). Tall S aisle with blocked pointed doorway. W-porch with diagonal buttresses and wide 4-centred arch with hoodmoulded nook shafts to 4-centred door.
Fine steeply sloping burial ground with old headstones.
Interior has open arched-brace roofs with collar-beams and stone corbels, fretted wall-plates to chancel. 3-bay aisle arcade with octagonal piers and hoodmoulds; pointed boarded doors with strip work hinges.
Church of moderate architectural interest in an exceptional location at Dynevor Park.
