More interesting than beautiful, the church consists of nave, chancel and central tower. The nave is twelfth century - a north window still dates from this period. In the thirteenth-century chancel is the outstanding sedilia, probably erected to mark the completion of the rebuilding works at that end of the church. Its shafts are of Bethersden marble and the top is boldly embattled. The church boasts a fine Royal Arms of George III. The corbels that supported the rood beam may still be seen while at the opposite end of the building is a charming eighteenth-century gallery built for musicians. Outside, on the south wall, we can find the remains of two mass dials.
