The structure and fabric of the chuch are mostly a product of the Decorated period (mid fourteenth century), with some later remodelling and additions. The church has a two tiered spire rising above parapets punctured by quatrefoil openings. The, original, doors are covered with fanciful ornamental tracery. An attractive Perpendicular screen divides the nave from the chancel, where a low passageway links with the vestry. In the south aisle traces of wall paintings depicting angels surround a wall niche.
