Notes: The church's location and dedication point to an early medieval foundation (CPAT). In 1827 WT Simpson described that 'there are many venerable yew trees, with their wide spreading sombre foliage. I had the curiosity to measure one, and found it above twenty feet in girth'. This tree is almost certainly the significant yew growing NW of and close to the church.
