The font is 15th-century, and the former north aisle chapel was a chantry founded in 1373 for John Pouger and dissolved in 1548.[1] The churchyard cross is 14th-century, although it was restored in the 19th century, and is both Grade II listed and a scheduled monument.[2][3]

The Post Office is a Grade II listed former cottage, now shop and house, dating from the late 17th century with 20th-century alterations and additions. It is likely to have been mud and stud originally, but is now underbuilt in red brick with a thatched roof.[6]
