Notes on Church:
The small church still has clear evidence of its Norman origins. Much of the fabric dates from the 13C and 14C, and there is fine later medieval work in the form of the timber framework that supports the bell tower and now the spire as well. The Nave and Chancel are not divided by an Arch, but by a fine medieval stone and timber screen. The Chancel was largely rebuilt c1860, but medieval features have been preserved by the restorer George Edmund Street who added stone and timber furnishings in his own solid style.

Introduction to Stained Glass:The church has 4 stained glass windows, with 3 of them being Nuttgens windows, with the largest 2 facing each other in the Nave. One is from 1933 by J E Nuttgens, and the other from 1991 by his son J A Nuttgens.
