Although the site is medieval the church was entirely re-built by J. Lewis of Newcastle-under-Lyme between 1868 and 1870.

Aged 102.

Aged 100.

The inscription is of some interest to a pedant like me! "Here husband Hiram" is, at best, clumsy - "Her husband Hiram" would be fine or miss out the word "husband" entirely.

This is the first time we have seen a memorial of a "Hispanophile" - a lover of Spain and all things Spanish.
