Harrison's description (1911):

ST. WULFRAN. Restored in 1867. This little church was originally Saxon or early Nor. (11th c.), and of this date are the chancel and central arch (the lateral arches have been opened in recent times), the little round-headed windows, and the nave. The lancet in the chancel and the tower are E.E., also the blocked-up arches on S. side. The porch has been rebuilt. Note: old oak screen in chancel (Dec.); stoup near blocked-up Nor. door on N. side of nave; low-side window; and herring-bone work on S. side of chancel.
