It features a remarkably complete Anglo-Saxon tower and baptistery, dating mainly from c. 970, and a large medieval nave and chancel displaying a range of architectural styles. The church is an archaeological treasure-trove, yielding unprecedented insights into medieval disease and diet, plus medical and burial practices from the analysis of 2,800 burials over a period of nine centuries.
