Not everybody will, in this Victorian-looking church, notice the Anglo-Saxon long-and-short work of the NE quoin of the nave. Nothing else tells us of this building.

The next period represented is about 1200. To this belongs the S arcade of three bays with round piers (only one old), square abaci, and trumpet-scallop capitals. But the double-chamfered arches are probably a remodelling of about 1300, when the S aisle received its E window with intersecting tracery. Perp chancel. The 19th century lengthened the church to the W and put the bell-turret on, with its odd concave-sided piece below the spire.
