Although Ryder says there is an ancient belfry (Ryder, 1993, 30), all window facings, the stonework of the belfry windows and some of the wall surface of the tower are all restoration, and with little attempt to look genuine. There is a scattering of corbels which are probably old. Their condition is too poor to merit individual description, but they seem to include masks and moulded forms.
