The church started as an aisleless Norman building ... C13 chancel  (see the narrow lancet windows in top pictures) ... Victorian W tower.

The aisles early C14. The arcades are of two bays only and standard elements. The chancel arch fits the arcades better than it fits the chancel lancets.
(
The church was locked at the time of the visit and these two photographs were taken through the nave windows.)
