The church is an ancient edifice, having a tower of more recent date; the south door is Norman, with clustered cylindrical jambs, and the north door of the chancel, though plainer, is of the same style: in the interior is a Norman arch with zig-zag ornaments, and at the west end a beautiful pointed window. There are places of worship for Primitive Methodists and Wesleyans.
