-----THIS IS MEANT TO BE THE CHURCH NOT CHURCHYARD-----------

This has been a site of religious worship since 800 A.D. The font is constructed from the base of an Anglo-Saxon cross of this period. A new church was built in 13th century after either the Vikings or the Normans had destroyed the original building. A major restoration took place in 1850 which is the church you see today. An organ was installed in 1866 made by Hill & Sons of London and is a significant instrument. A set of bells was added in 1893 and the clock in 1897.
In 1947 a memorial chapel was opened to commemorate men who fell in both World Wars. There is a Roll of Honour.
Over a doorway to a small vestry is inscribed 'Thos. Eansley 1611' with mason's symbols alongside.
