That is correct. The monumental "Anglo-Saxon Architecture" by H.M. and J. Taylor states that "the nave is substantially pre-conquest fabric" and dated to Period C ie. AD 950 - 1100. Alton Priors is much younger, but that doesn't mean that an earlier church never existed on the same site. There is no evidence of one though.
