The external appearance is that of a C15 Yorkshire Church built of coursed gritstone with a west tower with heavy Perpendicular detailing of 1493-1508, and destroyed nave and aisles with battlements of circa 1430-58.

The transept chapels are of 1899. The south aisle, its clerestory and porch were rebuilt in 1832-33 and again remodelled in the restoration of the 1890's. Furnishings comprise a Maufe baldecohino at the west end and a fine spired, late Gothic font cover. The original chancel has very early work (1862) by Morris and Co to designs by F M Brown, Rossetti and Burne Jones. Other glass by Kempe 1899-l900. Some fine monuments including work by Scheemaker and Flaxman.
