Around the plinth a frieze of cusped panels containing shields. West doorway is enriched with fleurons, crowns, mitres and shields; a hoodmould encloses rose-carved spandrels. Part of the door is original. Above is a 3-light window flanked by canopied image niches. 3- light belfry openings (renewed). Nave is substantially C15: to the south are 4 tall 2-light windows, considerably restored; moulded south doorway with hoodmould supported by 2 large crowned heads. C15 porch with original roof. To the north a range of 5 2-light clerestorey windows. C15 nave aisle has 3 restored 3-light windows and a doorway enriched with shields and fleurons. North aisle extended by 2 bays to east c.1475 to form a Lady Chapel, the windows now renewed. Chancel is in Perpendicular style, with a 4-light east window and 2-light windows to the south. Interior. Low 6-bay aisle arcade, perhaps of late C13 date. The Lady Chapel has a single arch to the chancel and to the nave aisle. Nave roof has an incomplete C15 cornice with embattled ornament and fleurons; the remainder of the roof seems to be a C17 reconstruction. Nave aisle has original roof, the main components moulded; 2 lower needled tie beams are C17 insertions, one bearing the date 1621. On the north nave wall are 4 C15 paintings showing St. Christopher, the Seven Deadly Sins, the Acts of Mercy and the Last Judgement. Mid C15 carved octagonal font; the tall cover is dated 1879. At east end of nave aisle are 4 benches with C15 poppyhead ends and carved arm-rests. The remainder of the nave and chancel seating is mid-late C19. Against east wall of Lady Chapel is a large marble monument to Thomas Maynard (1742) by Charles Stanley. This shows a life-size figure standing against an urn set on a pedestal; the pedestal has a well-carved relief of women and children. The whole is set against a black marble obelisk. 2 ledger slabs at east end of nave have C17 brass inscriptions.
