Parish Church. Basically C13 and C14 but much restored: the south aisle was added in 1904. Mostly of granite rubble with ashlar dressing. West tower, nave with one aisle, and chancel. Late C13 buttressed west tower of 2 stages with west window with 3 cusped light, and paired foiled light to bell chamber. Embattled parapet with gargoyles. South aisle of 1904, in early decorated style. Its west wall has 3 stepped buttresses containing a door and two windows. Niche with statue over south door whose moulded arch springs from chamfer rather than a shaft. Two foiled 3 light windows with corbel heads. Plain parapet with gargoyles. South west window of nave consists of 3 rounded headed lights with high relieving arch and is early perpendicular. High chancel is slightly wider than the nave and built of fine rubble on a plinth. In its south side is a low side window and late decorated window of 3 foiled lights. The east window is a C19 restoration of an early perpendicular 5 light window with very plain tracery. The four north windows are Victorian renewals with stilted hoodmoulds and corbel heads over 3 light tracery.
