2. A flint church with stone dressings of C13 origin with C14 and C15 alterations. Restored in the C19. The west tower was destroyed in the C14-C15 and was rebuilt, it fell down in 1790 and was rebuilt in 1792. It is now faced in cement. The 2 western bays of the nave arcade and a lancet window in the chancel give evidence of the C13 origin. The rest of the nave, the south aisle, the north chapel, the crossing and transepts are of the C14-C15. The south chapel was rebuilt in the C16. The roof of the south aisle is of the C16. There are two C16 brasses, one (early) of a woman and another of a baby in swadling clothes (John Howard d 1600 aged 12 days). The church forms the central feature of a good local group away from the village centre. Graded for its architectural and historic value. (RCHM 3).
