Structure in General

existing [completed]


  • The church is so-called because it was built on the site of an oval Knights Templar church which was originally founded circa 1150.
  • The chapels and choir are in the Decorated style and date from the 14th century whilst the aisles and nave date from the late 14th century and are in the early Perpendicular style.
  • The tower was built in two stages: stage one, circa 1390 and the second, circa 1460; it leans roughly 1.5 metres (5 feet) to the west.
  • The tower has a flat top, devoid of customary embellishments such as parapets and pinnacles.
  • Following aerial bombardment on November 24, 1940, the church's interior is now a ruin; it was deconsecrated and is now managed by English Heritage.
