About this image
Originally Saxon, the church is now mainly 17th and 19th century - the two occasions when it was restored. Some of its Saxon origins can be seen in its carved stone Saxon font, and two stone cross shafts in the churchyard, and the blocked round-headed doorway in the south wall may be Saxon too.
