The Parish Church of St. Giles

The church has a very different kind of bell tower, a massive twelfth century structure rising between nave and chancel, its upper part however, being a restoration.  Below, the crossing is impressive with a fine carved west arch of the period.  There is interesting work of the twelfth/thirteenth century period both inside and outside the church, notably the nave arcade.  There is a Norman font and an unusual twelfth century statue of Christ seated on a dragon.
