Originally a large church with three aisles and three chancels with a square tower and wooden turret, built between 1375 and 1550; only the southern chapel remains. The rest of the church survives as buried archaeological remains. Building is subject to hertiage crime. The owners are also looking at possible future uses for the site, including the provision of studios and a cafe in a new, seperate building at the edge of the site.
