All the windows of the nave and chancel and are lancets and appear to originally date from the 13th Century. These are three large lancets in both the south side and north wall on the side. The chancel has a smaller lancet of two plain stepped orders in its north wall. All are renewed, although original stonework survives inside (e.g. the jambs of most windows, including the middle lancet on the north side). The nave lancets are deep and only slightly splayed. 19th Century: A significant restoration apparently took place c.1850-4, and while White's directory of 1878 gives the date as 1855, at the cost of £300, this is not mentioned in his earlier directory of 1859, although an earlier restoration of 1830 is mentioned. Of this nothing appears to be known. For the 1850s restoration the application details, which include a ground plan, are contained within the Incorporated Church Building Society archive, and the architect seems to have been Benjamin Thorne of Basingstoke, and the work appeared to include repairs to the roof, casing of the internal walls, new windows (it is not clear whether this means that new windows were added or existing windows were renewed, or both), building of the new vestry, rebuilding the bell turret, reseating, and other repairs. Restoration is obvious, but not overwhelming. Much of the stonework was renewed, and the east window was inserted. It is unclear whether this window, which is early perpendicular in style, faithfully represents the style of the original, but the suspicion is that it does not. The chancel arch is 19th century, but represents the style of the early 13th century with its unmoulded arch and plain imposts . It may well be a faithful reproduction. It is difficult to determine whether the flint walling of the nave is medieval or modern. It doesn't look old on the north side, though it consists of whole as well as knapped flints . The west wall certainly looks more recent, consisting mainly of knapped flints . The south nave wall is more likely to be old , but both the north and east chancel walls appear to have been rebuilt.
