Notes: The church originated in the 12th century, with major alterations carried out in 1844 and a serious fire in 1867. Kelly's Directory of 1895 reported that 'the yew trees in the churchyard form a delightful avenue from the east entrance to the church'. It is hoped that there is a record of the planting date of this avenue. The trees are seen here first of all in 2010 hidden by ivy. By 2015 this had thankfully been removed allowing these fine trees to once again be appreciated.
