This Church has not one Inscription in it. Neither is there, here, any Thing at all remarkable, but, that, The Communion Table stands in the Middle of the Chancel; wch. I have also seen in some other Churches. It consists only of the Chancell and Body – and has no Steeple; but, 1 small Bell hangs at ye West End, in ye Inside; it has no Inscription.

Mr KILBURNE tells us, p.265, that, "by an Earthquake happening 6 Apr. 1580, a Piece of this Parish Church fell down". It is quite uncertain to whom this Church was dedicated.

It is a Curacy.
1. The *Present Curate is Mr Thos. PENNINGTON.

The Arches over ye Doors are round, and embellish’d after ye Saxon Manner.

2. In the Church Yard are Memorials of DILNOT, GARNETT, MAY & STRINGER.

3.  On Sutton Downe, are 7 or 8 Tumuli Sepulchrales of ye Ancients.
