The oldest parts of the Nave are the attachments of the end arches to the Tower and the Chancel Arch. These are 11th century. The Nave arches, with their cylindrical piers and square abaci, together with the pointed arches, are late Norman, probably before 1190AD. The north and south arches differ slightly in that the ribbing under the north arcade is not in the centre of the wall. There are three arches on each side.
