(S3) states that the church dates from 1790 this refers only to the western bay. The two eastern bays are the medieval
chancel. A nave, two aisles and tower are said to have been destroyed in 1790. Dry area trench November 1988 revealed a projection of masonry at junction of old and later work on the south side, suggested by the church warden as the east wall of the former south aisle, but more likely to be the base of a buttress. The remains of a buttress above
it, and no such projection on the north wall - so did the church have aisles?. Within the church some box pews have been removed, to be replaced by pews from elsewhere - 'old floor' exposed was in fact a brick and pammet floor probably of 1790.
