The church consists of a nave, chancel with apsidal sanctuary, S transept, S porch and N aisle. The tower and nave are late 11thc. (the chancel and tower arches are c. 1080). The N aisle was added in the late 12thc., i.e. c.1190, and the N arcade of two bays is Transitional. The apse and the S transept were added in 1841. The Romanesque elements are the tympanum over the S door, the chancel arch (W side) and the remains of a disused font.

The tympanum is unusual and may well be Saxon (there are elements of Saxon stonework in the S wall of the church). It is possible that it was originally set in a doorway at the base of the tower where a memorial window now stands. Pevsner calls it 'Kinderkunst`, and suggests a Nordic influence. The redundant font stood as an ornament for many years in the vicarage garden.
