Description
A photogrammetric survey of the church's west tower was carried out. The tower was probably built to a single design in the third quarter of the 11th century. The masonry from which it is constructed is mainly re-used from earlier buildings, largely Roman, although there are also a number of fragments of Anglian and Anglo-Scandinavian funerary sculpture. A series of putlog holes suggests the scaffolding system that was used during construction. The tower was repaired on many occasions but, in particular, it is argued that the interior arrangements were completely re-organised in the later 15th century, probably as a result of the replacement of an original bell.
