The Church of the Holy Cross is a very fine and original example of early 13th century architecture. Its importance lies in it being of one style, built in one period, and the restoration carried out by R J Johnson in 1870 shows sympathetic judgment. The plan of the Church is unusual. The nave and aisles areso wide in proportion to their length that they appear to form a square. The chancel is also disproportionately long in comparison with the nave.
