PeriodPost Medieval
Church, said to be 'undistinguished architecturally' in 1858, totally rebuilt 1867.
Thought to be the site of an monastary from which fragments of a reliquary casket are known (Edwards & Hulse 1992 (Ant.J. 72), 91-101; 1997 (AW37), 87-8);
Associated with:
Row of four stones, one inscribed, in churchyard (Nprn275771)
Possible chapel site to S (Nprn400477).
The churchyard encompasses a low spur, suggested as an enclosure delimited by a bank, marked by trees, c.12m W of the church, resting on steep scarps above a stream on the N, elsewhere poorly defined.
