To the western end of the south aisle, and behind the door by which you enter, is to be found a board recording the names and periods of incumbency of the 56 priests who have served this church during the 800 years of its existence. It is a silent witness to an unbroken chain of ministry from 1220 A.D. to the present day.
About many of our past incumbents we have no story to tell. About others, little anecdotes and points of interest remain.
