Summary Description

Evidence of different periods of construction can be seen in the stonework for the chancel is of a reddish sandstone, the nave of a lighter stone, and the tower and spire of regular 19th century masonry. The mediaeval masonry in chancel, nave and north aisle has been much restored in the last century as can be seen from the painting and the re facing of parts of the walls. The windows have also clearly been restored in the 19th century.
