From the west-northwest.


Within a rather circular stone enclosure are the ruins of an old church.
The architecture is simple and neat, with no particular detail worthy of note.
All walls but half of the north and part of the west ones stand to their full height.
In the south wall there's a pointed arch doorway which seems it has been remodeled in the past. A narrow window is the south wall, another one is in the east (100°) wall. Both are very splayed on the inside. On either side of the east window is an ambry.
Within the chancel there are some small stones marking ancient burials.

In the surrounding graveyard, to the west-northwest of the church, there are two standing stones.
