Notes on Church:
The church is essentially a Norman building, very clearly seen by its original Chancel Arch. The tower was added in the 15th Century, and the church was restored in 1897.

Introduction to Stained Glass:The glass in all 9 windows could have been fitted as part of the 1897 restoration. Certainly the East window was fitted then, and possibly the two Sanctuary windows (with quarries) as well. The 5 Nave windows certainly look as though they were all made together, having a common design with greenish glass and the same leadwork. Windows 03 and 06 probably re-use panels from the former East window.
