Notes: The earliest part of the church is Norman, though the www.achurchnearyou.com website states that 'the foundation walls suggest that there was a Saxon Church here before the present one was built in 1160'. The two old yews grow on the south side, while two younger yews, seen here, grow either side of the east lychgate.
