A handsome Perpendicular church
This church presents an almost entirely fifteenth-century Perpendicular appearance from the outside.
Inside, however, the arcades of the nave are surprisingly different in character even though of similar date. The north side has low cylindrical pillars with circular capitals while the south has taller pillars, octagonal in plan with detached shafts. All contribute to a delightfully well-proportioned and spacious interior.
Several elegant monuments commemorate the Cartwrights in the eighteenth century including a very handsome Coat of Arms.
A medieval treasure saved by George Gilbert Scott
A 12th century church made of “handsome stone” in a tiny parish.
