P.C.Tomlins, RCAHMW, 12.12.2002

C13 origins but mostly C15; bellcote C19 with C13 bells; C19 restoration. Rubble stone construction with slate roof. Consists of Nave, chancel, S porch, and W gabled bellcote. Of particular interest is the late medieval screen; 2 panels either side of entry have surviving tracery. Turned balusters to communion rail, C17 or early C18. Font enclosed by two-sided screen, the top rail C17, but the ogee-moulded uprights and rails may be C15-C16. C19 pews, pulpit, and chancel stalls.
