Notes about this historic site

1 Chancel with N vestry, N aisle, S aisle, N porch and W tower. The remains of the Saxon church consist of the range of windows above the nave arcades, which were discovered in the last restoration of the church. A unique feature was a high gallery at the W end, the doorways of which still exist in part. Later in the 12th century (c1170-80) aisles were added on both sides and Saxon windows and doorways closed up. In the beginning of the 14th century the chancel was lengthened and rebuilt and the W tower built. About 1360 the aisles were rebuilt and widened. There were various additions and alterations in the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
2 ‘A church of intense archaeological interest.’ Above the present arcades between nave and aisle are the remains of double-splayed Anglo-Danish windows and two Anglo-Danish doorways about 4m above ground level. This is the remains of a gallery as at Wing and Jarrow. This church of c1000 was provided with Norman arcades about 1160.
