II*

Parish Church. Chancel, nave, south porch and west tower with a circular
vice turret to the north of it. This is all that remains of a larger church
with north and south aisles and chapels which was struck by lightning in 1559.
The chancel is about two-thirds the width of the nave and not central. The
tower is C13 and stands at the north-west corner of the nave with no communication
between the two but a blocked arch on the east side of the tower which led
into the demolished north aisle. The chancel and nave are Cl5 and have blocked
arches on the south side which led into the demolished south aisle and south
chapel. The churchyard contains some C18 headstones with cherub and skull
motifs and some early C19 sunray motif headstones.
