History

The oldest stonework in St Nicholas dates from the 11th Century. The main section has been much extended and re-ordered over the centuries. There is a peaceful Lady Chapel dating from the 1930s and the “Tower Room”, taking its name from the Norman style clock tower, acts as a church hall. It was added in 1987.

For more information about the history of the church you can:
