Church. C12 nave with C13 transepts and C15 porch. Chancel largely rebuilt in 1838 when central tower was reconstructed after a collapse by Robert Ebbels. Weald sandstone rubble with some tile pieces, dressed sandstone blocks on buttresses and rough dressed, galleted blocks on transepts and chancel. Horsham slab roofs with short, wood-shingled broach spire to tower. Cruciform plan about a-central tower. Corbel table to tower eaves over arcading with multiple, clasping, offset buttresses to angles over diagonal buttresses on the lower stage in the re-entrant angle between nave and transepts. Simple two-light, round- headed openings in upper stage to each face under single round-headed relieving arches and with central columned, cushion-capital mullions. Trefoil windows over three widely spaced lancets in transept ends with deep reveals and offset butt- resses to angles. Lancet windows in east and west sides of north transepts. C15 Perpendicular style window to east side of south transept. Crucifix on gable end of chancel, re-cut C19 Perpendicular style window below on east end, offset buttresses to angles. One arched window in deep reveal to north side of chancel with hexagonal glazing tracery. Similar window but with diamond-pane glazing on south side of chancel. Large Perpendicular style window on south side of nave, Perpendicular style window to west end over porch. Three paired, round-arched windows at different levels on north side, the ones to centre in square surround. Vestry addition to west with C19 bargeboards. Gabled porch to west with ogee and scalloped bargeboards. South door, early C12 with large jamb shafts, big scalloped capitals and thick order to arch with double roll moulding under the hood running into the imposts. Considered by Pevsner/Nairn to be the best piece of Norman decoration in Surrey, although possibly altered in the C19 restoration. Further doors to west sides of transepts. Interior:- Simple. Tiled floor. Three bay crown post roof to nave. Three bay chancel roof with moulded wall plate. Hexagonal tiles to chancel floor. Rubble- stone crossing arches with continuous double chamfers.
