Summary Description

The church is at the latest late 13th-century in origin, as evidenced by the only obvious medieval features, the chancel east window and the bell of 1296. The walls are built of a mixture of local sandstones, with dressings of sandstone. The architectural style chosen by Austin & Paley in their restoration and extension work of 1904 is that of the date on the carved panel, ie c 1600, so that the church is reasonably homogenous in appearance. Indeed, the north-east vestry extension is so sensitively done that one cannot discern a join, with the random coursing of the old build carried through.
