Excerpt from The Archaeological Journal, 1846, Vol. 2: Published Under the Direction of the Central Committee of the Archaeological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland

The church consists Of a fine chancel, a central tower, and a nave; with aisles extending from the western front Of the building to the eastward face of the tower; a south porch, and a vestry attached to the north side Of the Chancel. The nave and chancel are of about the same height, that is, their roofs are nearly on the same level; but the base-moulding, which runs round the whole, is varied in its level by several breaks, being considerably lower in the west than in the east front. This, as well as the string-course under the windows, is uniform throughout, except in the additional chapel. Both ends are finished with an embattled parapet, instead Of a gable, the central battlement being raised in two stages, so as to suit the pitch Of the roof, which accordingly is very low. In fact the only gable in the chru~ch is that of the vestry, which has almost as low a pitch as it is possible to give. The parapet Of both Chancel and nave is embattled, and has pinnacles Of a square section, with delicately em battled horizontal strings, (instead Of gables or canopies,) their faces being set cardinally. They are not crocketed but have a well-executed finial. This kind Of pinnacle is in excellent cha racter, and well suited to the building.
