Nave with north aisle and south porch, crossing tower and apsidal chancel. Gilbert of Sempringham built the first Gilbertine priory North of the church in 1131, but by 1139, the community had grown too large, and a new site was selected for Sempringham to the South, (see TF13SW4). Part of a mid-10th-early 11th century grave cover now in the south porch was found in the churchyard.
