This large church has evidence of fire damage on the masonry inside the building, the rebuilding probably occurring in the fourteenth century, which is the date of the crownpost roof.
The upper part of the tower, with its strange pyramidal roof with a short spire atop, is 13th century.
The interior of this church has a rather jaded feel about it - although it would seem to have an active congregation. Here is the nave looking east.
The church boasts two Piscinae - one on the east wall of the chancel and the other, rather damaged, in the south wall of the southern chapel.
The organ, against the south wall, has rather a home made look about it - although I am sure it performs its role well.
In the base of the tower we 'discovered' this 18th century reredos, presumably removed here in a re-ordering at some point.
Also in the base of the tower hangs this nice Royal Coat of Arms.
This view across the road of the north side is rather marred by the electricity cables.
Here is the Norman west door, which has much weathered 12th century work and the south, also Norman.
Here is a view of the east end - with the south chapel nearest the camera.
A final view of the church bathed in late afternoon sunshine.
