Feature Sets

The north doorway of the nave is the only 12thc. survival. Most of the building dates from the 13thc. though its details were renewed in the 15thc. A short west tower was added in the 15th or 16thc.


The church is poorly documented, and does not appear in the historical record until the 1291 Taxatio when it is valued at £ 7. 9s. 4d.


Exterior Features



The church was restored in 1833 and, by T. H. Wyatt, in 1858.
