Small scale recording carried out in ?March 2002 by Gary Marshall of the National Trust, following removal of a small area of plaster from the base of the south wall of the interior of the nave near the southwest corner. The original construction of the wall was uncoursed rubble limestone packed with smaller pieces of limestone and bonded with a lime mortar. A row of broken ?medieval floor tiles had been applied to the face of the wall, at a point where the wall thickens noticeably, possibly during the restoration of the church in the 1860s (B8).
