Notes

NMRS records that 'traditionally the church was erected near a spot called St Caran's Well; 'Caran's butts', where archery was formerly practised, were near the church, and St Caran's Fair was held in the churchyard.' the foundations of the old church are still visible here (100 yards SE of the modern one).
