About this image
A church has stood here since before 1086. The old church seen here stood till 1856, when it was taken down and the present edifice erected on the site at a cost of £2,200 by H I Stevens. The old 14th century piscina was rebuilt in the wall of the new chancel, and there are also preserved some 18th century monuments to the Allestrees and Borrows. The register commences in 1614, and the communion plate bears the date 1662. In the porch of the new church which replaced this one are two very ancient sepulchral slabs that were found under the foundations of the old tower, which fell in 1775. The one bears an incised cross with circular head, the other a plain cross supposed to be Saxon work.
