Flint rubble with some limestone rubble, with dressings of limestone and clunch; crenellated parapets and parapet-gables. Slated roofs to nave, chancel and porch; flat roofs elsewhere. The 4 main phases of work are:- a) Fragments of C12 nave. b) Early C14 tower. c) Late C15 or early C16 virtual rebuilding of body of church. d) Major restoration of C16 work in 1851. At each corner of the nave, some walling and limestone quoins with engaged columns and chamfered abaci from the previous, C12, nave. A 3-stage tower added C14. The parapet cornice has closely-spaced mask ornament and 3 carved gargoyles. On all sides are 2-light belfry openings and on the north and south sides flanking side lights. 2-light west window above moulded doorway. Sanctus bell opening (blocked) and chamfered tower arch. All other work was renewed c.1500, probably in stages. Large mainly 3- and 4-light windows (many with transomes). Moulded doorways; one blocked, led from the north aisle to an anchorite's cell, later demolished. The nave arcades have embattled capitals to the attached shafts. Roofs heavily restored, perhaps replaced in the chancel. Nave roof in 6 bays: hammer beams with arch-braces to high collars and short kingposts. The deep cornice has a carved angel to each bay. The chancel roof similar, in 5 bays. In the chancel a piscina with traceried head, another in the south transept. In the north transept the pillar and base only remain of a projecting piscina. complete roodloft stair on the north side; beside it, corbels for 2 images, and on the south side a niche for a third. Octagonal limestone font, C16 but heavily recut, bearing the emblems of the Passion in panels; fine C16 cover, of cupola form with crockets on each rib. In the chancel, 4 C16 bench ends built into C19 choirstalls, with carved animals upon the buttresses. Wall tablet in the chancel to Francis Seyliard, rector, 1676. Marble floor slabs, 1729 in chancel, and 1699 in north transept. A fragment of limestone in the south aisle has 2 human figures crudely carved in relief, C12 or earlier; possibly from the tympanum over an entrance door. All the C16 stonework was heavily restored in 1851. The south porch and all other furnishings provided 1851.
