Constructed of limestone rubble the building is made up of a three-bayed nave, two-bayed chancel, south porch, square tower with a saddlestrap roof (~1600), transeptal vestry/organ chamber and boilerhouse. There are some Medieval structural artefacts including the red sandstone and limestone openings and the nave may date to the 13th century. 

There have been several renovations done to the building in the 19th century, but it remains largely a medieval church.
