St Clement's was originally a Norman cruciform church with a central tower. By 1200 the transepts had been demolished and the tower shortened, leaving a narrow corridor between the nave and chancel. the nave has retained its Norman character whilst the chancel is Early English. The lack of stained glass allows for a light and airy atmosphere. Notice the royal arms of George III and a 15th century wall painting of St Christopher carrying the Christ Child opposite. The Decalogue board is signed by the churchwardens of 1747 and 1748. The rambling churchyard is a pleasant place to wander. The churchyard features inscriptions of drowning and shipwrecks. Walking groups are welcome to use the toilet through prior arrangement with the churchwarden.
