The west tower is probably 14th-century. Mackintosh has drawn it from the south-west. The church has two identical 18th-century boot scrapers by its south porch and its priest's door. The headstone is unidentified. Mackintosh made a large number of studies of profiles of English headstones, almost all dating from the 18th century. He maintained that they 'put to shame the designs of architects and others which make the modern graveyard hideous'. ['British Architect', 22 November, 1895, p.360] The page has been inaccurately numbered "36 - 37" in an unknown hand.
