Now that's what I call a bellcote!

Far from having a normal west bellcote, or even one over the chancel arch, the architect Thomas Trubshaw has continued up the south porch into a rather astonishing feature! His work dates from 1840, but the church was further extended in 1882 (chancel etc) in a much more traditional style.
