Summary

This church has a brick and flint chequer-board tower which is thought to have been completed in the early 16th century, just before the Reformation. The nave appears to have been rebuilt at the same time, and a large chancel arch constructed for a rebuilding of the chancel which never happened. Inside there is a 15th century font, as well as a rood screen with some old work and a medieval tomb.
