Church (Anglican)
Medieval double-naved church, with fabric perhaps dating to the fourteenth century, although the foundation is certainly older. The south nave was added in the fifteenth century and the tower perhaps in the sixteenth century. The church was restored in 1885–6 by John Norton, and there was a further restoration in 1913–14.

User contributed comments

The architect believed to have been involved with the 1883 restoration was thought to not have been John Norton, himself, but a jumior in Norton's office.
