1 Nave, N and S aisles, chancel, W tower and spire, and vestry. The tower and spire of the old church were retained; they had been rebuilt c1750, perhaps by Job Collins.

A vestry was added in 1824-6 and the chancel rebuilt in 1869.
2 Tower dates from 1748, but was probably refaced when the church was rebuilt in 1779-80. Chancel by John Gibson, 1869-70.
