The Christian church was built in the 12th century and was deliberately sited in the middle of a pagan place of worship in an effort to assimilate Christianity and stamp out the Pagan beliefs. The Norman origins are clear from the plain round arch leading into the east end and the round-headed arches of the arcade dividing the nave from the north aisle.
