It once had chapels on both sides, that on the south side has disappeared. the arches blocked and now containing windows. The nave is an addition, formerly being much smaller, a new larger one was built. This around the 14th century. At the same time the builders were to have rebuilt the chancel, though if for costs, the builders after going to the trouble of making a large chancel arch, his idea was cancelled. Inside the south porch are finely sculptured heads either side of the door of the King and Queen. The tower of the building has a very unusual chequered effect, using Norfolk Flint and brick. It looks very striking.
