Harrison's description (1911):

Shortened in 1724. This little church has a plain early Nor. chancel arch; the S. door and body of the building, some of the windows and priests' door are also Nor. The porch is 16th c.; the trefoil -headed windows are E.E.; there are also some late Perp. windows; those on S. side are of green sandstone and in excellent preservation. There is a circular opening filled in on S. side, which was a low-side window; and another old square one near it. Note: circular marks on priests' door (sundials?); font; sepulchral slab. The chalice is dated 1588. There is some old stained glass. Reg. 1538.

The Mannings are buried in the chancel.
