I

2. A flint and stone church of C13 origin but with considerable C18 restoration and rebuilding after the fall of the central tower in 1698 which destroyed the chancel. The nave has early C13 arcades with circular columns, the north arcade is of circa 1210 and the south arcade is of circa 1220. Two of the capitals have carved foliage. The south aisle was rebuilt in circa 1340. The south porch, with moulded roof timbers, is of the C14 and the north aisle is of the C15. The clerestorey and chancel were rebuilt in 1793 when the west bell turret, spire and parapets of the nave and aisles were probably added. The restoration and rebuilding was done by Richard Muilman Trench Chiswell of Debden Hall, 1797 whose elaborate tomb in the chancel was built to a design by John Carter patterned on the Chapter House at York, octagonal with a ribbed plaster vault. The fittings include a fine iron bound C16 chest. The church stands in an isolated situation. Graded for its architectural and historical value. (RCHM 1).
