Architecture

The church building you see today is the outcome of two rebuildings in the 19th century and reflects the changing architectural styles of the period in the gothic of the aisles, and the late Victorian gothic revival of the chancel and nave.

Only the West tower is earlier, of 1630, rebuilt on its mediaeval base, possibly to accommodate the newly fashionable change-ringing of bells. This very substantial tower, surmounted by its Hertfordshire 'spike', now has an extensive ring of ten bells.
