Hi Karen

My VCH has the following reference :

"In the 1860s the recotor Charles L'Oste's great age inhibited innovation,
but parish life revived under his successor John W. Irvine, rector 1870-97
and rural dean from 1880, who increased the number of services and rebuilt
the church and rectory house. His association with G.H. Wilkinson suggests an
interest in the reconciliation of ritualists and evangelicals; he also urged
better relations with nonconformists."
