The church appears to have started life as a cruciform church, of which the north transept, the southern wall of the south transept built into the south aisle and the north and west walls of the nave survive.  Of the original features one narrow Romanesque door survives leading into the north transept as well as a rest north doorway into the nave.  The only herringbone work is at the top of the east wall of the north transept and it overlies flint rubble and Victorian? brickwork.  It would not appear to be of any great antiquity.  Nearby is Rockbourne Roman villa from where the tiles probably came.
