Harrison's description (1911):

ST. BOTOLPH. Of the Saxon church the chancel arch, with axe-carved corbels, and S. wall of nave remain. The N. aisle (E.E.) has disappeared; the chancel and tower are early Dec. The east window (early Dec.) and that of Patcham are so similar as to suggest that they were the work of the same craftsman, though the type is not uncommon. There are two lancets to be seen; the rest of the windows are Dec. Note the two low-side windows; stone brackets, one each side of altar; aumbry; piscina; Jacobean pulpit, Royal arms on panel (Charles 2nd). There are three fine old bells, Close to the church is the old Priests' house (14th c.). Reg. 1601.
