A gorgeous little church with a polychrome doorway
This tiny church dates from around 1200 and has a great sense of peace and serenity. The gorgeous Early English doorway of this tiny church alternates bands of orange ironstone with grey limestone which creates an eye-catching polychrome effect. Inside, there is an elegant curved ogee arch over a fourteenth-century window and attractively carved corbels around others. The low tower was added in the fifteenth century. Other things of interest include a plain Norman font with a pretty seventeenth-century cover, carvings and some solid nineteenth-century oak furnishings.
