fine Anglo-Saxon church tower of 3 storeys
with an offset at each level on a projecting string course.
The first floor string course slopes somewhat towards the west,
giving the impression that the ground floor is of a different built to
the 2 upper floors. Under this string course, to east and west,
single row of herringbone
masonry. The top
of the tower first storey has an odd small rectangular light pressed
against the bottom of the string course to the south, while the second
floor has a fine splayed Romanesque window above. Further
small, rectangular lights are pressed against the second floor string
course to the west and north. The top storey has fine 2
light, Romanesque bell windows.
The arch from the nave into the tower is
fine, but small, not much larger than the more ornate west doorway
opposite. Above it, now cut through by the
current nave roof is a doorway in typical Saxon fashion.
