Notes about this historic site

1 Chancel with small N vestry, nave, N and S aisles and W tower. The chancel is mid 13th century and one of the best local examples of the period. The nave was probably of the same date, and the lower part of the tower was perhaps added a little later in the 13th century; it was altered and heightened in the 15th century. S aisle probably of c1400, but N and S arcades of nave and the N aisle date from 1875, when much alteration was done. Modern vestry. The church is recorded in the late 12th century.
