West tower, nave, chancel, north porch; C15 west tower (bequests 1485-1487) with diagonal western buttresses with flushwork panels. 3-light Perpendicular west window. 2-light bell openings. Small cusped openings on south and west sides. Parapet of stepped battlements with crocketted pinnacles. Polygonal stair turret on south side. Upper section of tower arch and drip mould for earlier steeper roof line visible on east face of tower. South door with moulded brick arch and drip plastered over, doorway blocked in brick. Nave windows 2 and 3 light Perpendicular, restored. Chancel has plain lancets and a 2-light 'Y' tracery window at south east corner. Evidence of a blocked lancet in centre of south wall. C13 Priest's doorway with restored arch. 3-light east window with Perpendicular tracery. North porch of flint with brick dressings, much restored C19; arch and niche above in brick with double hollow chamfer. Tall narrow tower arch now cut by later roof, said to date from 1817. Chancel roof also replaced: king struts on collars, shallow pitch. Plastered ceiling over nave. Banner stave locker adjoining north door. Rood loft stair at north east corner. Good square headed screen, probably early C15 with panel tracery above crocketted arches : four bays on each side of central arched opening. Much original colour remains, the lower panels painted alternately red and green and patterned with floral motifs.

Shallow pointed arch low down in south wall of nave.
