Nave with N aisle, chancel, W tower with Hertfordshire spike. Construction is of flint and pebble with ashlar facings. The 12thc. S nave doorway, protected by a porch, has a figural tympanum. Access has not yet been possible, but Pevsner reports a Norman font.
In 1086 the largest landholder was the Abbot of Ely with a manor of 2 hides and 3½ virgates. In addtition, 2 knights held 1 hide and 22 acres of Count Alan, Pirot held 5 acres from Eudo fitzHubert, Hardwin de Scales held 1 virgate and 10 acres, Ralph held 3 virgates from Picot of Cambridge, and a priest held half a virgate from Countess Judith.
Round headed, one order with tympanum but no lintel. The tympanum, a single block, is carved in relief with an arcade of ten bays curving around it, but is otherwise plain. The piers have scribed lines for coursing and low block capitals, and the arches are semicircular. Each bay contains a figure or object, from L to R:
1. A disembodied human head floating under the arch.
3. A disembodied or severed head on the ground between the piers.
4. A simple throne facing R.
5. A frontal standing human figure in a long robe with full sleeves.
6. A standing, male figure with bald head and beard, clothed in a long robe and facing R. He touches the R capital with his L hand while holding an object (rod, flail, sickle?) in his R.
7. A standing, clothed female(?) figure facing L and touching the L capital with an extended hand.
8. A standing clothed figure facing front with each hand resting on the capital alongside.
9. A standing, clothed bearded(?) figure facing L and touching the L capital.
10. A tall, font-like object, narrow in the centre and flaring out at top and bottom.
The first order jambs have replaced nook shafts on modern bases. The L capital has a single volute at the angle and cable necking, the R capital a spidery palmette on the angle and plain necking. Capitals support plain chamfered imposts and a plain arch.
