A three-arch round-headed arcade with fictive shafts flat with broad triangular bases and no capitals. The left has a tall symmetrical tree, its trunk vertically split and five pairs of simple branches ending in downward curving spirals.A nebuly line runs up the left side, and at the top a pair of teardrop-shaped loops echo the shape of the tree.A blocked N doorway, converted into a window, indicates a 12thc.date, but the S doorway, pointed and chamfered, and small pointed lancets in the lateral walls suggest a major 13thc. Lateral two-light windows were added at the E end of the nave in the 15thc. There is no chancel arch and the chancel, slightly lower than the nave, has a 13thc.S doorway and plain pointed lancets in the side walls at the W end.Further E the lateral windows have Y-tracery, suggesting that it was lengthened c.1300.The church stands alongside the B1123 and the moated hall site, with a medieval farmhouse, is 500 yards (457 metres) to the S.

The fact that the lines are only inscribed, rather than left in relief suggests that this face is unfinished.

The church is a two-cell building, largely of flint.

The nave is tall with a wooden belfry on the W gable.

Benefice of Fressingfield, Mendham, Metfield, Weybread and Withersdale. The lower section, between the jambs, has been blocked with bricks and the area under the arch converted into a window.

The arch is of plain voussoirs on plain hollow-chamfered imposts, roughly cut back on the inner surfaces.
