By Teulon, 1865. Neo-Norman, not a popular style among the High Victorians. Chalk, the walls in crazy-paving.
W tower with a Sompting top, i.e. Rhenish Romanesque.
Where the true Teulon comes through is in the aisle roofs and fenestration. The windows are arranged symmetrically l. and r. of a gabled rose window with plate tracery.

The room inside is vaulted. The E arch is thickly Anglo-Norman, but the N and S arcades have capitals rather Italian Romanesque than English. Oddly enough, the capitals of the chancel arch have naturalistic leaves instead, and so have the roof corbels.
