The simple interior. Rebuilt in 1859 on an ancient site with a turbulent history, the church has seen very little, if any, change. The oil lamps still light the building, and although the cast iron heating stove is no longer in use, it is still complete.

The Saxon Church was rebuilt by the Normans. Raids by Welsh Princes destroyed Bytonís Churches in 1262 and 1402, but they were rebuilt, and the manor prospered in spite of the Black Death. The 15th Century Church survived until a fire in 1857. Pevsner credits the design of the present church to Thomas Nicholson.
