The tower is low and square apparently having lost an upper stage, now topped with a pyramid shaped roof with weathervane.
The south entrance porch has blocked in windows and a niche for the churches patron saint, the main door is Early English in style.
The interior is delightful with a pleasant wooded roof. There are several interesting memorial monuments from 1609 to the 19th century. The east window is particularly interesting having been designed to celebrate the accession of Queen Elizabeth ll
