History

According to Pevsner this church was built in 1810 yet the bell cote is clearly dated 1865.  Also there exists a confusion between this church which is dedicated to St Saviour and a previous church dedicated to St Osyth.

One bell hung for swing chiming in a west bell-cote.

One small bell, without mark or inscription, but apparently cast in this century-possibly in 1810, when the church was rebuilt.

Metal bar headstock with unusual wishbone chiming lever and almost cylindrical clapper.
