The Saxon church of St Laurence dates from around AD 705 and is arguably the most complete and best preserved Saxon church in Britain. The lower parts are original, while the arcading above is thought to date from around the end of the 10th century. The church was altered for domestic dwelling and its original function was forgotten for many centuries. During repairs in 1856, two carved angels on the chancel arch were revealed. The building was subsequently returned to the church authorities in 1871.
