This is one of the most perfect 13th-century churches in the county. The strong W tower with its detailed windows; the attractively long chancel with its five lancets along the sides; the N vestry; the characteristic arcades; and supremely the E wall with five stepped lancets, finely restored in 1866-9; all makes a 13th-century origin evident and that was the culminating time for the most prolific three hundred years of parochial church building in the history of England.
