Until the late Nineteenth century the church consisted simply of a Tower, Nave and Chancel, and it is largely from an extensive restoration and enlargement carried out in 1880 that it derives its present appearance; a photograph of 1872 shows a cluttered interior with cumbersome box pews. At that time the trussed rafters of the roof were completely concealed by plaster; a gallery, installed in 1842, hid much of the noble perpendicular Western Arch, while the Chancel Arch was an ugly timber structure. The workmanship of the present arch is severe but well proportioned and echoes that of the arcade linking the Nave with the North Aisle.
