The earliest parts are of rubble stone. The church has tall perpendicular windows with the exception of the chancel which has two Norman windows. The church has a Georgian oak pulpit. The church has a Norman doorway to its north although it's doubtful it is in its original position. Outside the church is a memorial in memory of the navvies who died building the nearby Bramhope Tunnel between 1845 and 1849.
