Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

I hope I am not boring you with my enthusiasm for this wonderful church but I wanted to concentrate on these Anglo Saxon characteristics of the tower before I move inside.

I have never seen such decorations on an old building before but these exterior arches, mimicking the structures of wooden buildings, is very much an Anglo-Saxon characteristic. You can also see the large slabs, used to make the pointed apex to the old, original doorway.
The tower, showing a different upper storey, was heightened by the Normans.

This church is reputed to be one of the best preserved Anglo-Saxon buildings in England so I am amazed that I have never heard of it previously!

My workshop will show the reverse side of the tower.

No more external views ... but I will take you inside, later!

Thank you for your continued interest, Bev :-)
