A medieval gem with a fascinating monument
The oldest part of this delightful church is the chancel, dating to the late thirteenth century and although the building was later restored, it still retains its medieval character. Some of the most significant fittings include medieval bench ends, a fine fifteenth-century font with original cover, several impressive wall monuments and a series of early twentieth-century Arts & Crafts stained glass.
The tower hosts a cast iron bell frame containing four bells, two of which date from the first half of the fifteenth century. One of the most striking features of the church is the seventeenth-century reclining effigy monument to Lady Bridget Carre who was Lady-in-waiting to Elizabeth I and Anne of Denmark.
