The arcades of the nave and the clerestory are rebuildings and additions of the late 15th century, and the N arcade of the chancel of the early 16th century, when the N chapel was rebuilt. The W tower is an earlier 15th century addition. A great deal of modern restoration. The S aisle has been rebuilt or refaced. The chancel was lengthened in 1852.
