1 Chancel with N organ chamber and vestry, nave with N and S trancepts and N aisle, and W tower. The W tower is said to date from 1315, but its W doorway is probably earlier and its windows later. The remainder of the building contains no ancient features. It was partly rebuilt by Sanderson Miller of Radway in 1775, when the trancepts and aisle were added, and again largely renovated during the period 1877-89. The organ chamber and vestry were added in 1897. The whole church is built of dark brown Hornton stone. First mentioned in the reign of Henry I (1100-35).
2 The W tower is of late 13th to 15th century. Openwork battlements and pinnacles. Late 13th century W doorway. The present church, said to be a replacement or remodelling of a church built in 1755 by Sanderson Miller, dates from 1873-9.

source OS Card Ordnance Survey Record Card. Before the 1970s the Ordnance Survey (OS) were responsible for recording archaeological monuments during mapping exercises. This helped the Ordnance Survey to decide which monuments to publish on maps. During these exercises the details of the monuments were written down on record cards. Copies of some of the cards are kept at the Warwickshire Sites and Monuments Record. The responsibility for recording archaeological monuments later passed to the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historic Monuments. back
period Medieval 1066 AD to 1539 AD (the 11th century AD to the 16th century AD)

The medieval period comes after the Saxon period and before the post medieval period.

The Medieval period begins in 1066 AD.
This was the year that the Normans, led by William the Conqueror (1066 – 1087), invaded England and defeated Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings in East Sussex.
The Medieval period includes the first half of the Tudor period (1485 – 1603 AD), when the Tudor family reigned in England and eventually in Scotland too.

The end of the Medieval period is marked by Henry VIII’s (1509 – 1547) order for the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the years running up to 1539 AD. The whole of this period is sometimes called the Middle Ages.
