The Church has a nave, chancel, north and south aisles, vestry, porch and crenellated tower. At the right hand side of the main altar, is a twelfth century capital and shaft which has been converted into a piscina. The clerestory windows are circular and have glass contemporary with the nineteenth century but the openings may be fourteenth century. The west window is of two cinquefoil lights under a four centred head and is probably fifteenth century. The windows now have the largest collection of Netherlandish glass in any church in the country, and are thought to have been collected by the first Lord Addington (restored by Michael Farrar-Bell in the 1970s). www.bucksstainedglass.org.uk/Indices/pl0001.htm
The main Altar, has let into it a very rare "Super Altare" probably of the fourteenth century.
The church was restored by G.E. Street in 1857-8, the building work being undertaken by a Mr Tibbitts of Buckingham. More restoration work took place in 1926-30 by Sir Charles Nicholson.
