The core is C12. Aisles were added in C13 and the chancel was rebuilt at this
period. South chapel added in C14 and the tower built against the C12 front with
its Norman doorway in C15. Norman west doorway also in the tower, probably re-set.
Heavy restoration in C19 when the clerestory was added and the roofs renewed.
In the chapel a notable large stone seated figure of Christ of late C13 work, found
under the floor. Triple sedilia in chancel and chapel. C15 chancel screen. Defaced
effigy of a cross-legged knight (probably Sir John Swynnerton, circa 1264) in recess
on south side of chancel. Good east window by Powell, 1864, designed by Sedding.
