Norman Arches

 
 
 
 


As you enter and look down into the church you will see the magnificent Norman style of Chancel, Choir and Nave which are separated from each other by two beautiful arches, perfectly carved with chevroned carving and supported by low strong pillars with heavy capitals. The large window that can be seen is where the original Norman apse would have been, but this would have be much smaller. The apse was replaced in the 14th century with a plain window similar to the one you see today.
