Standing on a raised mound possibly a pagan site, the round tower is said to be the oldest in England, built c900AD and recently restored with the aid of Heritage Lottery Funding. The belfry openings are a striking and unusual feature. A fine War Memorial faces the visitor on entering, possibly painted by Cecil Hare, a pupil of G F Bodley. The perpendicular east window is thought to have been glazed by Clayton and Bell (1859). A Bishop's chair and an ancient chair made up with three misericords stand in the sanctuary. The four oil paintings by Richard Foster RP are an important 21st century feature.
