Description

The church dates to circa 1100, and was built on the site of an earlier Saxon church. It has a west tower of two stages, a nave and chancel. It was restored in the 15th century, and the transepts, vestry and south porch were added in 1795.

Hatchments are usually diamond-shaped, but this hatchment is square. It commemorates a person with the initals "G.R.", and is dated 1757.
