Notes about this historic site

1 Chancel with N chapel and vestry, nave, N aisle, and W tower. The building dates from the 12th century, but the only evidence of this period is the S doorway which may have been reset at a later period. The nave has windows of the end of the 13th century, and the chancel appears to have been rebuilt from early to mid 14th century. The W tower is said to have been added or rebuilt in 1767. The N aisle was added in 1865 and the rest of the building restored. First recorded in the reign of Henry II (1154-89).
2 The Norman S doorway is nearly all Victorian. Indeed the church was over-restored in 1865, when the N aisle and N chapel were built.
4 Noted by Ordnance Survey.
