Feature Sets

The chancel arch from the medieval church was apparently reused as the entrance to the north choir chapel in the restoration and reconstruction of the church in 1875-8. However, if it has been reused, its carving has been significantly sharpened. The nave and the chancel date from the Victorian reconstruction, but the tower dates from the 14th century, with a spire of 1633.


Domesday Book records Bishop Osbern holding the church of this manor along with two hides of land, the whole being worth 55s.
