NOTES: The church dates back to the 13th century, but was altered in the 14th century and over the subsqequent centuries. The west tower and spire were completely rebuilt in 1876. The chancel was rebuilt in the 16th century to accommodate the monuments of the Manners family (seen here), the Earls and Dukes of Rutland. The monument to the sixth Earl of Rutland is 1632 by Nicholas Johnson and to the first Earl is 1543 by Richard Parker. See RIBA158351 for a colour version of this image.
