The Tower

Church Tower

  • This interesting church has a Lincolnshire type of unbuttressed tower, originally Anglo Saxon
  • It has some surviving Anglo Saxon herringbone masonry at the base 
  • It has a blocked-in Anglo Saxon west doorway in which has been inserted a window formed from the destroyed belfry lights
  • The cornerstones indicate that it is was largely rebuilt in Norman times (no long-and-short work)
  • The rebuilding utilised  the original Anglo Saxon window.
