In the late 14th century the church

had a south aisle added, and also a porch. Behind the wall which separates the south aisle from the 'Lady Chapel' (now a choir vestry) can be seen a piscina, an alcove with a small basin for washing the communion vessels, showing that there was once an altar at the east end of the south aisle.

On the interior north wall of the nave are 14th century corbels. One of these is angled and marks the east end of the original nave.

Excavations uncovered a large medieval stone hall just north of the church on the site of the Roman villa. This must have replaced the moated hall which had fallen down by the early 14th century.

 

The stone hall does not seem to have been used for long, and no documentary mention of it has been found.
