porch almost all other work is C14. South aisle was added mid C14, with a 4-

eaves cornice of stone with ball-flower ornament; another internal cornice on
both sides has a frieze of various motifs. A 5-light net-traceried east
window has 2 large flanking canopied image niches, richly-carved and with
traces of colour. 2 good 3-light windows in the south wall. Further similar
mid C14 windows of 1 and 2 lights in nave and chancel side walls. Moulded mid
