St. Peter's consists of a nave, chancel, south chancel chapel, south tower, and south porch. The 13th C tower is of four stages with a Perp top stage, embattled parapet, crocketed pinnacles, and a West stair-turret with a pyramidal roof rising from a small embattled cornice. There are bell-openings with Perp tracery filled in with pierced stonework. The nave has a wagon roof. The south porch has a 15th C entrance. The church was restored in 1897 by C.E. Ponting. The font is a Perp style octagonal bowl carved with quatrefoils.
