The porch on the south side has a four-centred arch to the doorway and pediment above.

St Marys has a tall, worn, ironstone tower dating from the 15th century.   In contrast, chancel and nave, are chalk and are 13th century in origin.

James Fowler rebuilt the nave and aisles in 1858, retaining the Early English style.

In the chancel, one of the window-sills still retains its 13th century painted scroll-work.

View from the south-west highlights the contrasting materials of which the church was built and subsequently restored.

The tower, built in the fifteenth century of ironstone and topped with Victorian ashlar crenellation; the nave and chancel of chalk - medieval but reused by Fowler; the south aisle faced in modern cement render (presumably to protect crumbling chalk).
