Harrison's description (1911):

SS. PETER AND PAUL. Restored and S. aisle rebuilt in 1861. The older portion of this church dates from the 12th c (Tr.-Nor.), and consists of the tower and S. pillars and arches. The N. arcade has pillars without capitals (late 13th c.). The chancel is E.E., and has a low-side window near priests' door. Note: squint; stairs to rood-loft; piscina; and aumbry. The N. chapel is E.E. with Perp. E. window; the two pieces of curious sculpture here were possibly remains of tombs (or reredos?). The N. porch has been restored, but the W. is interesting, and has original barge-board. Font, 13th c. There is some old glass. Reg. 1568.
