Step back in time at this unique and beautiful village church. The church was almost certainly built in Anglo-Saxon times, during the early 11th century and this building forms the nave of the current church. stone. The Chancel and porch were added in the 14th century, while the tower was built in the late 15th century. The porch has original carvings of a face and a scallop shell in the roof beams.

Although the church is small, there is much to see and discover. The blocked Saxon ‘devils door’ can be seen both inside and out, and there is an impressive coat of arms of George III. The nave roof timbers are inscribed with names and dates, probably from 18th century roofers!

The church has Jacobean (1600s) high oak box pews and pulpit which date from the
reign of James I. The last four pews on the south side are lower and open - it is thought that these were originally intended for servants! In one of the pews is a brass memorial dated 1609.

There are some lovely stained glass windows, including one featuring St George and the dragon. In the churchyard is a large stone thought to be the original altar. There are also some interesting memorials, including one to a Messenger of the Great Chamber in Ordinary to His Majest.
