Reasons for trip

There has been a church on this site since Saxon times but little remains of this church apart from some of the masonry at the base of the south wall. The north aisle was added in the 12thC . The nave and chancel were rebuilt in the 13th and 14thC. The tower dates from 15thC. The small south aisle and porch are Victorian.

Set in a grassy churchyard just off the main street, the church has a tall, crudely built west tower with stepped buttresses and tall crocketed pinnacles. The top is faced with ashlar. On the south wall is the remains of an old sundial.

Inside, it is very quiet with just the loud tick of the clock. Round Norman pillars with water leaf capitals and round arches separate nave and north aisle. The arcade continues beyond the pointed chancel arch into the chancel. Walls are plastered with stone and slate memorial tablets. They are gently bending outwards. On the south wall is a small Norman window.

A pointed arch leads into the small south aisle with small altar.

At the end of the north aisle a low pointed arch leads into a small chapel.

The chancel has scraped stone walls with a beamed and panelled rood with carved bosses. The high altar has a small stone reredos with three carved arches. In the centre is a cross. On the left is the symbol IHC and the Chi-Rho symbol on the right. All are set on a gold mosaic base.

There is a simple octagonal font at the back and the old poor box. Furnishings are 19thC . In the nave are two rather unusual priest’s chairs with beaded backs and arms, which must have been very uncomfortable.

The church is open 9-5 and there is on road parking. It is a nice church, but with nothing exceptional to fire the imagination. It is only worth visiting if passing.
