Parish church. Early C12 Norman cruciform plan with central tower, early C13 south chapel and south aisle to nave of three bays, rebuilding of east end c1500, restoration of 1870 by Ewan Christian and of 1906-22 by Sir Ninian Comper. Walls of flint with stone dressings, one Norman window, most others (restored) of C14 and C15. Norman west door of recessed orders, with zigzag ornament: notable central tower with triple arcade to the bell stage and circular openings above, capped by a broach spire. Slate roof, leaded to tower and nave. Inside, the C13 moulded arches have circular columns between chancel and chapel and octagonal columns in the nave, both with moulded caps and bases. The reveals of Norman windows remain in the east and west sides of the south transept. Traces of medieval painting. The pulpit (1706) came in 1906 from the Church of the Holy Trinity, Minories, London (which was dismantled in 1899), being of octagonal form with panels and bolection mouldings. There are several wall monuments (mainly in the south chapel) of the C18 and early C19. The font bowl from Westbury Chapel is in the south aisle. The church is famous for its Tournai font.
