Pevsner says “the building history of the church is interesting, and can be read more profitably from inside out than from outside in”. He is of the opinion that this arcade is no more than a cutting through an originally aisleless nave, based on the style of the arches, and the date of the original nave to the church, which he believes to be of 12th century at the latest. This is certainly an intriguing proposition, and certainly the south aisle is narrow enough for that to be so.
