Contact: Bells were last tuned and rehung in 1890 by Taylors. The parish church is a fragment of a Norman priory and retains some interesting features. The church originally had a central tower, but this was replaced by the present tower on the North West corner of the church in about 1200. The most noticeable thing inside the church is the painting of the chancel ceiling which was done in 1672
