This is a most attractive, largely late 14th-century church. From the 14th-century tower surmounted by a slender and graceful spire with flying buttresses, the charming 14th-century S door with ballflower moulding, and the 1878 well rebuilt chancel, to the fine 14th-century woodwork of pew ends, and the 15th-century rood screen, to the 17th-century pulpit, there is much to please the eye and raise the spirit of the visitor.
