Summary Description

A circumstantial, and seemingly reliable, account of the church kept in the vestry gives the date of the nave as c.1340 and that of the tower as c.1430; certainly the date of the north aisle windows would be consistent with a date of c.1340, and the tower is undoubtedly Perpendicular and consistent with a date of c.1430.
