Built in black sandstone and rubble stone, the church has a large nave 64m long by 12m wide. The magnificent Gothic chancel built in the 15th century collapsed in 1817. The glazing is modern and was crafted by a master glassmaker from Chartres. The west front has a white limestone doorway with two archivolts.
