Summary Description

The remains of the tower seem to be partly Saxon or early Norman or in origin, and the stone used for the north-west quoins of the nave suggests a similar date. Nothing else, however, from this period remains. The south wall has some Y-traceried windows suggesting a thirteenth-century date and also a Perpendicular window. The north chapel was rebuilt for the most part in c.1850, but the west wall is still mediaeval. The west tower fell on 30 March, 1959.
