  • Main Description

    Grade I listed.

    C11/12 origins with C13 and mainly early C14 additions. Building materials consist of coursed limestone rubble and ashlar dressings. Roofs are of metal sheet.

    Central features include a three-bay aisled nave with a chancel, west tower and
    south porch. The chancel retains a tiny round-headed window on each side and a C13
    lancet to south, but has two-light side windows and a four-light east window of
    Decorated style.

    The south aisle is entirely elaborate Decorated work with a high
    moulded plinth, gabled buttresses with ogee-canpied niches, and three-light side
    windows, a four-light east window and a two -light west window, each of a different
    tracery pattern.

    The two-storey south porch has a ribbed quadripartite vault with a
    richly-carved boss, and the parapet continuing around the aisle has fantastic
    gargoyles. The north aisle is plainer with three-light windows of reticulated tracery,
    but incorporates a C13 doorway with deeply-moulded arch and five shafts, both
    detached and attached, with stiff-leaf capitals.
