Church of England

St. Dennis (parish church)

The church of St. Dennis is an ancient building of stone in the Early Norman style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and an embattled western tower containing a clock and 5 bells: in 1904 it was restored, under the superintendence of Mr. William Weir, architect of the Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings; the foundations were repaired and the interior of the tower rebuilt; the work was carried out in such a manner as not to interfere with the ancient architectural features of the building: there are sittings for 100 persons.
