The design retains good examples of Norman work, particularly around the north door. Much of the stained glass is of modern vintage, as is the peal of 8 bells in the Decorated period tower. The interior has low, pointed arches supported on simple, smooth, columns. In fact, most of the interior contains little decoration, and the effect is subdued.
The former vicarage of the church is known as Oliver Cromwell's House, as the Cromwell family lived there for 11 years beginning in 1636. Cromwell's youngest daughter was baptised in the church in 1638.
