Circa 1170, a remarkably complete and unaltered Norman church, consisting
of nave with aisles, chancel and west tower. Later features include clerestory
windows of the C18. The chancel has a C15 crown-post roof of 2 bays. An
unusual feature of this church is a mediaeval scratch-drawing of a ship on
the wall of the rood-loft staircase. (RCHM).
