Harrison's description (1911):

The (restored) Saxon tower is of two stages with herring-bone work and N.E. quoins long and short. The chancel, nave and N. aisle, with very small lancets, are E.E. The E. end window is formed of three long ogee trefoil-headed lancets under a broad low internal arch. The N. aisle is divided into two parts by a cross arch from central pier to N. wall. The nave has a fine waggon roof of king post and hammer beam alternately. Note: Dec. low-side window in S. wall of chancel; aumbry under lancet in N. wall; trefoil-headed piscina with shelf in S. wall; a round-headed squint on each side chancel arch; tablet to N. Coller, rector (169½). The curious bas-relief of our Lord (?) bruising the serpent's head, on S. wall above the porch, found in 18th c., is Saxon. Font, early Dec. of same local type as at Willingdon.
