An avenue of neatly clipped yews leads to the west tower, the only part of the medieval church that remains. It is clasped by huge pyramidal brick buttresses on the corner added in 1737 when the earlier nave was replaced

Dame Alice Cotton died in 1657. Her monument is by Joshua Marshall (1629-1678). Joshua is best known for executing the pedestal designed by Grinling Gibbons for the statue of Charles I at Charing Cross.
