A tiny gem of a church which seems to be wholly Perpendicular with its square-headed windows, tower and embattled parapet. Inside, however, there is evidence of an earlier church with a Norman arcade, vigorously carved capital and a Transitional chancel arch of about 1200. A very good 15th-century rood screen remains, enthusiastically coloured by a Victorian rector, though the rood itself is a copy.
Grade II* listed.
Origins in C12. Building materials consist of limestone rubble and ashlar. The roofs are of Stonesfield slate and Welsh slate.
Architectural features include a three bay nave, south aisle and porch, chancel and a west tower. The chancel dates from C15 and is ashlar with a moulded plinth and steep pitched roof.
Windows are mostly C15.
The nave is C15 and features a deep moulded plinth with a crenellated parapet. The three stage tower is also C15 and is crenellated. The tower also includes diagonally set pinnacles and a west window.
The chancel arch has moulded square imposts and includes a fine C15 chancel screen with traceried panels.
