II*

C12, C13, C16, C18 and 1870. The aisleless nave of 3 bays and west tower are of 1870
(by Clark & Holland) and the chancel of the C13 (restored); there is a south chapel
(or transept) of the late C18 at the easternmost bay of the nave, and north of the
chancel is an Elizabethan chapel. Externally, the western tower of 3 stages is in
grey brickwork with stone dressings; crenellated parapet, flat buttresses at each
corner and Norman windows; the original Norman west door has been re-used for the
entrance, and incorporates a decorative arch resting on recessed columns with scal-
loped caps. The nave has a tile roof, flint walling with stone dressings, buttresses
and 3-light perpendicular windows. The south chapel is in red brickwork with side
lancets and plate tracery in the gable window. The chancel has a lower tile roof,
rendered walling, small lancets, a priest's door (filled in) and a perpendicular
3-light traceried east window. The north chapel has a tile roof, rendered walling,
stone moulded gable, high plinth, buttresses and arched (3 and 5-light) windows within
square frames and a doorway. Inside, there is a large decorated Norman arch (formerly
chancel arch?) between the chancel and the north chapel, and another opening which is
part of the elaborate classical stone framework of the tomb of Robert Oxonbridge
(1574) with 2 effigies, and 2 helms (replicas). The restored font has an old Norman
top, with zig-zag ornament.
