the church is mostly c14, though restored of course c.1860 when the vestry was added. next to the aisle is one of those dismal ugly modern extensions that so many home counties churches seem to favour. the church is open daily, even on christmas day, and…

north aisle c.1330, tower c.1450 except for its west door. the thing like a bus shelter to the left is the horrible modern loo block and meeting hall; why they build these things instead of putting decent heating into the church is beyond me.

tower c.1450 except for its west doorway, a totally renewed version of a c14 doorway with good victorian ironwork. the window above is basically c14 too, though its c15 surround shows that it and the doorway must have been reused from the original west wa…

new tower gargoyle, rather a good one too, modern and singular. when such figures have become shapeless lumps I'd say it's always a good idea to replace them , especially if something as excellent as this is the result.

the c14 west doorway looks to have been recently replaced with this copy. I don't know what state the original was in, so am unable to judge the need for such a drastic measure. regardless, the replacement has been well carved, and the c19 ironwork on the…

sun dial bearing the date 1584, and the name of the c16 curate, henry peacham. currently on a brick buttress, this was moved from around the south doorway when the porch was built c.1859.

coningsby rebus rabbits amongst the c17 heraldic glass; the frowyke chevron and leopards' heads and the ferebie goats refer to alliances of the earlier part of the c16, there is no sign of the more important boteler link, and I don't know why the whi…
