Come and visit our lovely country brick built church.
Although there is some evidence of a chapel having existed at the end of the 12th century, the earliest definite reference is of a licence is dated 1425. It was probably little more than a room in his house.
In 1433 permission was granted for a chapel and minister. Following the Reformation it fell into neglect but was rebuilt in 1616. At the beginning of the 18th century the chapel collapsed under the weight of its stone roof. Repairs were undertaken, including the construction of a brick tower in 1724.
The present church was built between 1850 to 1886, together with a new vicarage and school. It is in the style of the 13th century church and retains the tower of 1724. A new belfry and slated spire were also added.
The church is delightful to look around and retains many interesting features – including portion of medieval glass in the south wall near to the pulpit and the medieval font. The churchyard contains the remains of preaching cross.
