a gabled C19 porch, and to the right of this the remains of 2 bays of the
former aisle arcade, consisting of semicircular arches in the masonry, and small
exposed portions of the capitals (see Interior, below); the blocking under the
first arch contains a C13 lancet, that under the 2nd a C15 square-headed window

the left of the porch, the 1st bay of the nave has a small Norman-style window
with round-headed lights. The west end has a small C12 round-headed lancet; the
east end has a large C19 3-light window in C13 style. On the west end of the
roof is a low square bell-turret with weather-board cladding and short splay-
footed spire clad in tiles and finished with a weathervane (said to be dated
1744, with initials "IS"). Interior: the 4-bay arcade to the former south aisle is
exposed, consisting of the inner third of circular columns with scalloped capitals
and square abaci, and semicircular arches chamfered on this side; in the east bay
the top left-hand reveal of the C15 window has a part of a re-located scratch
or mass dial; the C13 window in the 2nd bay has keeled moulding, and a
hoodmould; the west end wall and the west, end of the north wall each have a
C12 window with deeply splayed reveal (the latter now covered on the outside by
the vestry); the doorway to this vestry is the altered original north door of the
nave; the south wall of the chancel has C15 piscina with quatrefoil head and
sunk traceried spandrels, and the north wall has a blocked 2-centred chamfered
arch; the nave has 2 massive chamfered tie-beams, the stubs of a 3rd at the

font with latticed metal strapping, and on the west end wall are 5 large
hatchments of the Pollen and Maddox families.
