Still traceable in the Churchyard just in from the East Wall can be seen some of the foundations of an earlier church to stand on this site. There is a fine metal rood screen and stone carved reredos as well as many plaques showing the ancestry of many of the local families.The church stands in a conservation area a reminder to all who visit of the glory of God’s creation.
