A two light Romanesque window, cut from a single block of stone, recalls the Saxon and Norman origins of the simple two cell church.

The porch and the little 19th century spire are among later additions, which also include a medieval rood screen, a 17th century squire's pew, and a 20th century reredos by the Arts & Crafts architect Charles Voysey.
