Long Description:

"It is a building, modest in its proportions, representative of the churches of the 11th and 12th centuries. It has a freestone steeple, rare for buildings of this size as well as a western porch more late, of which there are however few examples. The major interest of this building lies in a remarkable collection of 14th century wall paintings, with figured scenes, visible in the North Chapel. They constitute a collection of rare quality and magnitude in the Oise. "

"Il s'agit d'un édifice, modeste par ses proportions, représentatif des églises des 11ème et 12èmes siècles. Elle possède une tour de clocher en pierre de taille, peu fréquente pour des édifices de cette dimension ainsi qu'un porche occidental plus tardif, dont il subsiste cependant peu d'exemples. L'intérêt majeur de cet édifice réside dans un ensemble remarquable de peintures murales du 14ème siècle, à scènes figurées, visibles dans la chapelle Nord. Elles constituent un ensemble d'une rare qualité et ampleur dans l'Oise."
