Harrison's description (1911):

ST. MARY MAGDALENE. Restored and N. aisle added 1853, restored again in 1901. The narrow S. doorway, almost concealed by modern porch (1718), and the chancel with two small windows are possibly Saxon, or at least early Norman; the W. door and massive tower are Perp. There are brasses (17th c.) to the Bolney, Pellett, and Culpepper families. The low-side window is a trefoil-headed lancet on the south side of chancel and is early Dec. There is a fine peal of bells, dated 1592, 1660, 1724, four of 1740, and the eighth not dated. Reg, 1541.
