The stones visible in the tower are part of the original building that dates back to 12th century. However, at the time they were the part of the side walls not the tower. The buttress was not the part of the earlier church, but probably built in the 16th century. The windows are not stained glass but are made of wood and are painted brown to resemble leaded windows. Before the war there was a stained glass window between the western towers, but it was destroyed in the fire.
