tower is C13. Restored in the C19 and C20. The west tower has diagonal
buttresses and a castellated parpaet with flint panel work. The nave,
aisles and south porch have castellated parapets. The main historical

in 1630. He founded the city of Boston and was the first governor of
the state of Massachusetts, USA. Graded for its historical interest.
