    C13 origins but restored C19. Building materials consist of limestone rubble with ashlar dressings. There are Westmorland slate roofs.

    Central features include a four-bay aisled nave with a chancel, west tower and south porch. The Chancel of C14 has three two-light windows each side with Y-tracery

    The Transitional tower of C13 has at the lower stage, clasping buttresses and a round-headed west window with a pointed outer arch and detached shafts. There are plain lancets to the second stage, and pairs of lancets to each face of
    the top stage with outer roll-mouled arches on detached shafts.


    There are C14 nave arcades of two chamfered orders under hood-moulds - round piers to north and later octagonal piers to the south. There is also a chancel arch. Woodwork dates from C19 except for barley twist communion rail in south aisle and C15 screen re-set in tower arch.
