A Saxon church, even if the Saxon work is a little less obvious than the similar work at Corhampton. Long-and-short NE quoin, lesenes W of it (not visible) and in the corresponding position on the S side (first picture). The doorway now into the N vestry has straight jambs too. In the chancel also redone C13 lancets, including a low-side on. The W tower has a rather French-looking top of 1879 by C.N.Tripp.
