Harrison's description (1911):

Restored in 1841-1864. The greater part of this church was destroyed by lightning in 1663 and rebuilt in 1672. Part of tower and S. doorway are 12th c.; rest of tower and S. chancel wall, Perp.; W. window, Dec. Font, 1666.

The S. aisle was added in 1844. In the Dorset chapel, belonging to the old family of Sackville, Earls (afterwards Dukes) of Dorset and Barons of Buckhurst, are many monuments and some banners and shields. An altar-tomb has the effigy of a son of the fifth earl (d. 1677) with his parents kneeling beside him. The monument to the fourth Duke is by Flaxman (1815), and that of Arabella, Duchess of Dorset, is by Chantrey (1825).
