Harrison's description (1911):

ST. GEORGE. Restored in 1904. The nave and chancel (which has no arch) are under one roof, and were built about 1300. The geometrical windows are beautiful; four each on N. and S. are all alike - two trefoil-headed lights with quatrefoils over; E. window is three-lights. ONe old door on N. and priests' door have 13th c. hinges. W. of this latter is low-side window. Note: a mutilated brass to Lady Margaret Camoys (1310), the second oldest one to a lady in England; a magnificent altar-tomb, with very fine canopied brasses, to Thomas Baron Camoys (1419), and Agincourt here, and Elizabeth his wife, the widow of Hotspur and the "Gentle Kate" of Shakespeare; a tablet to Thomas Otway, the dramatist, who was born at the rectory. The porch, altar-rails, and font-cover are early 17th c. Some remarkable paintings on W. wall were uncovered in 1904, Font is tub-shaped (Nor.).

The church is said to have been rebuilt by Lord Camoys in 1400; but this must have been only a restoration, as the windows are of much earlier date. Reg. 1581.
