Summary Description

The building was built in the 12th century on the site of an earlier stone church erected in the 11th century. This earlier church is thought to have replaced an even earlier Saxon wooden church. The arches over the south and tower entrances are remains of the 11th century stone building and are Romanesque in design, while the present building is an example of early Norman Gothic church. The two low lancet windows on both the north and south sides of the Chancel date back to the 12th century while the rest of the building at present is the result of extensions and alterations over the past nine centuries.
