Notes about this historic site

1 Chancel, N chapel, N organ-chamber, tower (S of the chancel) and nave. The chancel and nave are vaulted. The tower is octagonal in the upper part and is surmounted by an octagonal stone spire. The only piece of re-used construction appears to be the roof of the organ chamber. This has a barrel-vaulted ceiling with panels, moulded ribs, and carved bosses of the 15th century, probably from the former chancel. Modern font, but there is a second font probably of the 12th century. In the N chapel are memorials to the Lucy family of the late 16th and 17th century.
2 By John Gibson, 1851-3.
