The roof was rebuilt in 1860 and the stained glass in the windows is early 20th century; the tower arch is decorated by a hood mould carved with trailing vines, presently supported with props as the keystone of the arch has slipped and there is a danger for the whole structure to collapse > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link.
