Notes on Stained Glass:The glass in all 9 windows could have been fitted as part of the 1897 restoration. 2 windows include some small panels that probably came from the previous East window.

Introduction to Church:The church is in a surprisingly isolated spot, but the village that occupied the land between the Canal and Railway has long gone, with the exception of the Manor House. The church is essentially a Norman building from the mid 12th Century, which is clearly evident inside by its original Norman Chancel Arch. The windows were enlarged in the 14th Century, and the tower was built in the 15th Century. The church was restored in 1897, all the work being paid for by a churchwarden.

Notable Features:
Norman Norman font (Aylesbury type).
