Long Description:
From the Historic England website at (visit link) :-
"From C12 but predominantly C14-C15. Large sandstone church with fine west tower and spire mostly perpendicular with panelled parapet. Perpendicular aisle windows, battlements, pinnacles and embattled clerestorey. Inside, the four bay arcade is perpendicular and carved timber roof to nave. Very fine C13 and early C16 alabaster monuments in north chapel and alabaster effigy of 1517 in chancel. Restored 1858."

From wikipedia:-
"The church belonged to a particularly large Parish during the early Norman period. Henry III arranged for the church and lands to be granted to Worcester Priory in order to support the remembrance of his father King John I, who is buried there. The Priory then ran the manor and collected rents and other income until the dissolution, at which point the lands transferred to the new Dean and Chapter."
