The earliest parts of the church are thought to date back to the 14th century and the main structure has changed little since then. In the 15th and 16th centuries the walls of the north and south aisles were raised  and extra windows added.  The present roof & stained glass windows are 19th century.  The church has 7 bells, the oldest dating back to 1678.

We will meet at the church at 2pm.  For more details or you would like to arrange transport, contact Odette Harris at churches@wtu3a.org.uk.

The church was built in the 13th century, the oldest part being the chancel which dates to about 1235, while the rest of the structure dates to around 1265.  In 1335 the north aisle was widened and a north porch added.  The central tower and west wall of the nave were rebuilt on the 16th century.
