The church is the third to have stood on this site and dates from 1876. It is thought that the lower part of the tower may be 18th century as there is a small round arched window on the south side – the lintel is inscribed 1767.
Inside there are many things to see including a 17th century font and beautiful 19th century stained glass windows, the ones on the south side are by William Morris & Company, and the village stocks by the porch in the churchyard.
