Church Roof is tiled, probably 15th to 17th Century.  It was restored in 1883.
The Nave and Western half of the Chancel are early 12th Century when the church ended eastwards in an Apse, which was removed and the Chancel extended to its present length in the early 13th Century.
Shortly after this the West Tower was added but never finished. The South Porch was added in the 15thCentury.

Chancel 32ft x 16ft. There are three Lancet Windows in the East Wall.  The break in the North and South Walls defines the junction of the 12th and 13th Century work.  In the North Wall the two windows are 13th Century Lancets and the Western Wall early 12th Century with a round head of Tufs. In the South Wall are 13 Century Lancets.  The Aumbry in the North Wall is 13th Century as the Piscina is in the South Wall.  Five feet from the East Wall are traces of an Altar Beam of the 13th Century on which Images and Reliquaries were placed.  This example of an Altar Beam is unique in the diocese.  Outside on the South Wall is a Scratch Dial used for telling the time for Orbits and Masses.
