About this church
Th church dates from Norman times, and the nave was extended early in the 13th century. There is a western tower and clerestory, both of which were added in the 16th century. The roof and roof bosses date from the same period. Some were later replaced. The chancel dates from the late 13th century, but the east window is of the Perpendicular style. There are remains of two 15th century incised slabs, and in the chancel there are several brasses. The church contains some fine brasses including the brass of Francis Yarborough, who died in 159, and his wives. His first wife was Elenor (nee Farmery) who was previously married to George Monson. They had two sons and two daughters, which are missing from the brass. Francis' second wife was Frances Wray, niece of Sir Christopher Wray. Francis was son of Edmund and Margaret Yarborough, and was a Sergeant at Law.
