Notes about this historic site

1 Church consists of a chancel, a N chapel, a vestry, S chapel, nave, N and S aisle, S porch and W tower. The whole church, except the 15th century Hornton stone tower, was rebuilt in 1855, to the design of George E Street in the style of the 14th century. From notes made by Pratlinton in 1812 the former church appears to have been of early date, consisting of a chancel and chapel and a nave separated from a N aisle by a round-arched arcade.
2 Brown-stone W tower of the 15th century, the rest 1855 by Street.
