History of the Church

It is always sad when Graffiti appears on walls. Even worse when carved into stone. The ancestors of Kilroy seemed to arrive in the church soon after it is built. Curved into the stone of the church they now represent some of the festinating history of the church. The first on the north aisle is an image of a knight, Norman in appearance, with the typical Norman helmet and nose guard. Most probably this is a likeness of someone off on the third crusade.

This one of several crosses carved into the fabric of the pillars of the church.

This work of art probably dates back to when the spire had just been added. The patterns on the spire can be made out
