"All Saints' has an aisled and clerestoreyed nave with four-bay arcades. The three eastern bays of the S arcade are early 13thc., with quatrefoil piers and stiff-leaf capitals [Fleshy leaf with a trefoil termination, extremely popular in England at the end of the 12thc and the beginning of the 13thc. It is often applied to capitals. - (visit link) ]. The W bay is 14thc. and was added at the same time as the tower. The four-bay Narcade and the Naisle windows are of c.1320. The arcade also has quatrefoil piers, but with moulded capitals. The lower parts of the N arcade piers were encased in neo-classical plinths, perhaps in the 18thc."
