Description

Exterior view of the church seen from the south east, showing the entrance to the grounds of the church and the south and eastern side of the church and the square tower with spire in the background. The three windows at the eastern end can be seen, partially blocked by the 15th century flying buttresses which are at the south east end. In the foreground is the war memorial designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield which was unveiled in 1919. The memorial is based on the Imperial War Graves Commission Cross of Sacrifice (now Commonwealth) also designed by Bromfield. The cross is 6 meters tall and on a stepped octagonal plinth which has a low round wall or kerb around the base.
