St Nicholas

A 12th century church.

About this church

The original building was remodelled by the Knights Templar in the 13th century in a cruciform plan and the west tower was added in the 15th century.

A new WC and kitchen were added recently, in the base of the tower. A new ringing gallery was installed above this, reinstating a gallery removed by the Victorians, accessed by a stair in the nave.

The most memorable feature of the outside of the church is the square tower with its massive buttresses.
