Notes NOTES: The earliest part of the church is the chancel c. 1300, the rest is from the later 14th century to early 15th century (i.e. the Perpendicular period of architecture). The west tower collapsed in 1808 and was rebuilt and a general restoration of the church was carried out in 1865-1866 by Bacon & Bell.
