The church has a 12thc. aisleless nave of coursed sandstone rubble, faced internally and externally, a brick chancel rebuilt after 1718 and a timber bell-turret. There were restorations in 1845-46, which included the rebuilding of the N nave wall, and in 1898. Romanesque sculpture is found in the S doorway, protected by a 14thc. timber porch, on a panel above it, in the chancel arch and on fragments in the E nave wall, discovered when the plaster was removed during the restorations of 1898.
