Notes on Church:
The church has work surviving from most centuries since the Tower was built in the 12th century. The character of the interior of the Nave is dominated by an early 18C plaster ceiling, which hides the 15C timber roof.

The church has one window unusually designed by John Oldrid Scott, another by Jones and Wills, and a splendid pair of Kempe windows.
