Notes NOTES: The early medieval church was rebuilt in the Perpendicular Gothic style following a fire in 1545. The tower was erected in 1682-1684. The church was heavily restored and refaced in ragstone between 1884-1905. It suffered severe bomb damage in 1940, was later restored, and reopened in 1960.
