Stained glass in this church dates to the early 16th century.{4}

A parish church which dates from the 15th century. It was constructed of greenstone coursed rubble, some ironstone rubble, limestone rubble and ashlar and has slate roofs. In 1889 the church was restored by Sir Arthur Blomfield. For the full description and the legal address of this listed building please refer to the appropriate List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. {5}

Fragments of a 10th or 11th century grave cover and grave marker are displayed within the church, on the north chancel wall (see PRN 41682). The fragments may indicate an earlier use for the site as a burial ground, and possibly suggest the presence of an earlier church. {6}
