Blessed Virgin Mary, Woolavington, Somerset

From the outside all seems normal here, a west tower, nave and chancel, all predominantly Perpendicular in style with some Victorian restoration. Not one of Somerset's grand towers, but quite tall and with a higher embattled turret in the north-east corner with its own recessed spirelet. However the fact that the Perp south window of the nave punctures the roof and has its own gable suggests that the nave is older than this. The impressively long list of keyholders in the noticeboard by the church path was not needed as a gentleman was readying the church for today's service. So what is wrong here?
