It's quite pieced together, isn't it?
An interesting mix of additions because I'm supposing it wasn't built that way originally.

The earliest bits are 12th century. The large brick chapel to the left is 17th century. It's a fascinating accretion of bits and pieces.

That is so nostalgic!Thank you
(They seem to have tidied it up quite a lot since the 1960s.)

This was my first visit. I was expecting the churchyard to be a lot wilder and overgrown.

Yes, i remember it being wild and overgrown - as were so many churchyards in the 50s and 60s

I prefer churchyards to be overgrown. I hate it when they remove the monuments and mow the lawns.
