The central tower, its base having round-headed Norman windows, suggests a Norman cruciform church and the nave itself is certainly Norman. The tower was extended in 1622 to replace a decayed lead-covered wooden spire. Apart from this, the church has seen few structural alterations since the early 14th century.

The Norman tympani are outstanding - this example has been protected by the porch.

Aged 100.

"Two Lovely Souls".

"Life was "brilliant""

Although rather worn this is an excellent example of the stonemason's craft.

Aged 103.
