Harrison's description (1911):

Restored in 1880. The church has been over restored, and much of the architectural value has suffered in consequence. It has a fine early Nor. tower with double-light windows divided by balusters, and a lofty broach spire. There are some traces of Nor. work also in the nave, otherwise the church is E.E. The fine E. window and some of the windows in the transepts have geometrical tracery, and in the nave Perp.; the fine screen (restored) is also Perp. In the transepts are three lancet windows with old glass which, during the restoration, was found buried in the churchyard. The elongated lancets at W. end of N. and S. sides of chancel walls are low-side windows. Note: squint; piscina and helmets in N. transept. In S. transept there is a fine brass on an altar-tomb to Sir Edward Dallyngrygge and lady (1390); another altar-tomb bears the effigy of Richard Leche and his wife (1596). In the W. end of N. aisle is the little brass with gloves to Petrus Denot, a glover, and a follower of Jack Cade. Amid the tombs of the Sheffield family is that of Edward Gibbon, the great historian (d. 1794), with an epitaph by Dr. Parr. There is a stoup in the nave, and a second one in the porch.
