Geocache Description:

Small tube

•The church of SS Peter and Paul consists of a chancel, nave, north aisle, south aisle, west tower and south porch. The walls are of stone rubble, some of them coursed, and the others mixed with flint; all have stone dressings. The roofs are covered with lead.
•The church is not mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086, but the early stones built into the walls indicate a stone church here in the 12th century. This church probably had a chancel and an aisled nave, to which a low western tower was added in the 13th century. In about the middle of this century, the chancel was rebuilt and widened to the north; soon afterwards the south aisle was rebuilt. The belfry was added to the tower towards the end of the century and, later still, the spire was added.
•Early in the 14th century, the nave with clearstory was rebuilt to correspond with the widened chancel. The north aisle was rebuilt around 1330 and, about the same time, the south porch was built. Towards the end of the 15th century, the walls of the chancel were heightened and a new roof put on; the aisles were also reroofed at this time. The nave was reroofed in the 16th century.
•The church was repewed in 1842, and the whole church was restored in 1876. The lower part of the tower was rebuilt in 1877 when, after everything else was finished, the belfry and spire were needled up whilst it was being done.
