Before landscaping was carried out in the 1760s the church would have appeared more domineering than it does today. It was built on the edge of a steep valley that flowed on to the castle.

The Church Pool created by George Durant has now silted up, a little way along the stream to the south, now deep underneath the pool was the main mill at Tong.
