Notes: Parts of the building date from the 14th century but the 'origins of the church are obscure' (CPAT). The church alignment appears to be ENE/WSW. Yews grow all around the church, the largest found at the E end of the building, while four more (two on the north side and two on the south side) are notable. In 2016 Paul Wood noted that yews 7 and 8 grow on the east and west sides of a small mound.
