Of the tower, Pevsner says in a footnote:

Mr. G. W. Copeland has pointed out to me that the base of the tower seems earlier than the rest, perhaps late 12th century, and that the pinnacles seem to be modern. Perhaps they were added by George Fellowes Prynne, who restored the tower and west end in 1895.

Observation indicates that he may also have restored flooring, the pulpit and the sanctuary roof. It is not clear what he did at the west end.
