Notes NOTES: The tower and the shell of the nave are Saxon dating c. 675. It was probably damaged during Danish raids in the late 8th century and early 9th century, necessitating some later rebuilding. It is one of the most important examples of early Anglo-Saxon architecture in Northern Europe. The chancel shown here is late 13th century and the rood screen originally dated 1519, was restored in the 20th century.
