St Swithun's is mainly 13th C. The north aisle was added in 1892. The 13th C west tower has a saddleback roof. The Early English chancel is well preserved and has a single lancet east window. The font is 17th C. There is memorial to the architect Detmar Blow who died in 1939. His name is carved on the splay of a cinquefoil-headed lancet window in the north side of the nave, by Eric Gill.
