Parish church. C13, C15, with complete restoration of 1869. Chancel with north vestry and organ recess, nave with north aisle (2 bays) west tower, and south porch, all in Decorated style. Plain tile roof. Walls of large knapped flints, with stone dressings: quoins, buttresses, plinth, reticulated tracery; the vestry has thin horizontal flint panels and brick quoins, bands, diagonal buttresses. The interior is Victorian Decorated, with a number of interesting features. On the north side of the chancel there are unequal Perpendicular arches with panelled soffits, the eastern most (& smaller) covering an altar tomb of Purbeck marble with male and female effigies (c1510); on the south side is an earlier perpendicular canopy arch above an altar tomb with an inset (unmarked) brass: the south face of the tomb is outside the church, associated with a restoration ogee-headed priests door and a traceried window. A C19 Perpendicular table top tomb forms an altar at the east end of the aisle. There is a pillar piscina, a Cl3 chancel arch, a Norman tower arch. In the tower are 2 vertical slabs, one with the eroded figure of a knight (c1200). The altar reredos is 1843, the font and seating 1844. On the chancel floor is a fine brass of a knight in armour (Sir John Lysle, 1407), and at the west end of the aisle an oak carved statue of a lady (Elizabeth Philpotts) in Elizabethan costume (of ruff, puffed sleeves, wide skirts). The tower of 1801 is of ashlar, with 3 plain stages, a crenellated parapet with tiny crocketted pinnacles at each corner; unusually the porch (of Perpendicular style) is attached to the east side of its south wall.
