An exceptional example of good restoration

This medieval church has an impressive pinnacled tower dated 1504. However, following some exceptionally sympathetic nineteenth century restoration it is hard to tell where the medieval fabric ends and Victorian work begins. The north aisle seems to be wholly nineteenth century though it was probably built on medieval foundations.

Outstanding features include a fourteenth-century effigy, a monument of 1599 and an excellent cycle of stained glass by the renowned Victorian designer Charles Kempe completed between 1885-1890.
