Description:

This late 11th-century church was built in the time of the Saxon and Norman overlap and has features of both these periods, with much use of Roman bricks. The robust tower and the nave are basically pre-Conquest apart from repairs, there are massive internal Saxon tower arches, and an example of the dual periods is the Norman moulding round the triangular-headed W door.
