Exterior view of the north side of the church, which has six buttresses along the eastern end of the north side, each topped with a crennelated pinnacle and alternating with the pointed arch windows. In the background is the tower, which was replaced around 1701-02 after it collapsed in 1609, and north vestry. The clockface can just be seen at the base of the eastern face of the tower. The abbey was first founded in 1069, and became the parish church after it was dissolved in 1536.
