Type and Period (1)
The recording of the north wall of the nave revealed three main phases of construction with the majority of the fabric characterised by well-defined flint courses and dating to the 12th century. A semicircular arched doorway was probably a contemporary feature but had at the very least been re-set in its original location. Three perpendicular windows were inserted during the late 15th or 16th century in conjunction with the raising of the nave walls by approximately 0.5 metres. A third strip of wall fabric at the top of the wall was thought to be associated with the construction of a new roof during the 19th century. Four burials were disturbed during the subsequent groundworks, all infants or children. It is not uncommon for the graves of infants and children to be grouped together close to the church in this way (S1).
See Med for church.
