Yesterday - all my troubles seemed so far away! part 8

A rather strange looking building, thanks to the Victorian roof with dormers on top of the low broad west tower. Nave with south porch and north aisle, and chancel with Victorian vestry to the north. The nave is Norman - see the small slit window west of the porch and the plain stepped chancel arch. This church had the best collection of monuments on this outing, including a strnge old gent with a long beard, the end of which is held between his praying hands on his
chest! The SE corner has a "kneelers" monument with a large number of named children below (two more names than figures, one of each). The Jacobean pulpit unusually sits on the floor. [I found the church open]
