The internal face of the north wall of the nave consists of a fine herringbone facing, much superior to the similar work at Ashleworth.  Externally the facing is a rough ashlar and contains a blocked Romanesque doorway and a fine double splayed Romanesque light.  Within the nave the north-west corner of the tower wall consists of a similar high quality herringbone work.  The main entrance via the west front of the tower consists of a reduced elliptical arch of 2 orders.  Most of this work would appear to be Saxon, although the herringbone has been claimed to be patching work.  This in turn begs the question as to why they would have bothered laying it in this fashion is uncertain.  The south faith of the tower carries 2 sheila-na-gigs.
