Late C13 tower with, on its W front, above a new (renewed?) lancet window, two faces set in, typical of the late C13 in their style. They may however be re-used and originally have been corbels somewhere inside. Low tower arch of two chamfers dying into the imposts. Perp nave and lower chancel. Panelled chancel arch. Nave roof of the Somerset type with tie-beams and king-posts.
