"the doorway with its unusual tympanum (the stone within the arch) and its/ font which are early Norman, dating from the last half of the 12th century.

The base of the tower with its three lancet windows, its shallow buttresses, and the nave arch suggest a transition from Norman to Early English in style, from 1200, a little later than the doorway and font.

The base of the Norman /font was renewed by Linford-Bridgeman Ltd of Lichfield in January 1992."
