The church is a plain building of coarse rubble, dating from the 13th century, and consisting of chancel, nave, aisles and a western bell cote, containing one bell. In the chancel is a piscina and aumbry, two other brackets and a piscina are in the south aisle and two brackets in the north aisle. There is a tablet in the south aisle to "Frances, eldest daughter of Sir Francis St. John bart. of this place, d. 1794". The church was restored in 1869 to seat about 200 persons.

At the present time, I have been unable to trace any pictures on the Internet. In due course I hope to source more information and to take my own pictures.
