The church was first built about 1160, and of that time is the plain chancel arch (picture in church website below) ... The next surviving part is the W tower, its doorway of three continuous chamfers and a high lancet over.  ... The N aisle was rebuilt in 1838 and it is plain that old Perp materials were used. ... The present S aisle is of 1843 (by J.M Derick).
