The church from the fourteenth century was built on a Latin cross plan. It consisted of a single nave, a chancel on the eastern side, northern and southern transept, and a porch. The four-sided tower on the west side was built at the end of the 15th century or around 1500. In its south-west part there is a staircase, and the whole is topped with a parapet and battlement on protruding corbels.
The southern wall of the nave, the chancel and the porch of today’s church are the result of a thorough reconstruction and renovation from the Victorian period. Originally, the no longer existing southern arm of the transept adjoined the church. Only the Romanesque baptismal font has survived from the medieval furnishings of the church.
