Excavations revealed a 10th century cemetery with precinct wall. No clear evidence of an associated church was found, but the later church was built on the footings of a 4th century town house, and it is not beyond reason that a timber building could have been erected on the foundations. The earliest church was pre-Conquest (early-mid 11th century). In the late 12th century a North aisle and South doorway were added, and the chancel rebuilt in the 13th century. Circa 1300 the aisle was widened and in the 15th century the chancel was again rebuilt. A brick West tower was erected in 1659. Although restored in 1860, it was redundant in 1876. In 1863 it was demolished and the best architectural pieces reused in the Church of the Holy Redeemer. During excavation, several pieces of Saxon cross shaft were found, all of 10th and 11th century date. The present churchyard walls and railings are dated to c.1860.
The church is now demolished and the stone re-used in the construction of the Church of the Holy Redeemer at SE 5754 5260. This new church incorporates in its fabric three A.S. cross fragments that were found during demolition. (2-6)
