The church, in the Early English style, but originally in the Norman, consists of chancel and nave: there is some stained glass in the chancel: the west end of the nave is very curious, having three distinct narrow lancet windows: the tower is square, in the Early English style: the south porch is much admired by antiquarians. The register dates from 1553. The living is a rectory, rent-charge 223 per annum, with residence, in the gift of the Duke of Norfolk, and held by the Rev.
