Notes about this historic site

1 Chancel with N vestry, nave, N and S aisles, S porch, and W tower. The building is of mid C12 origin, as indicated by the angles of the nave, blocked windows in N wall of chancel, and a reset doorway in N aisle. The N aisle and W tower were added in C14, followed by the S aisle in the C15 and then the clearstory. There appears to have been a good deal of alteration in C18 and C19 alterations also occured. A priest is mentioned for the manor of Tachbrook in 1086.
