Notes about this historic site

1 Nave, chancel, N aisle and W tower. The chapel at Ansty is recorded in the early 12th century, when it had only recently been built; nothing remains of it, but the difference in width between nave and chancel may have been a feature of the original chapel which survived subsequent rebuilding. 13th century chancel, restored; nave rebuilt in the 14th century and partly rebuilt in 1876. N aisle 15th century or early 16th century; it may once have had a chapel or transept. Alterations from 1852 onwards, including a W tower with octagonal belfry and spire by G G Scott, replacing a bell turret, and a ‘restoration’ in 1876.
