Standing across a field, this church is a long low building, with an attractive small slated bell turret at the west end. Built from local sandstone, it dates from the 13th or early 14th century and seems to have been extended westward some time after it was first built. Restored in the 18th century, the building was restored again about 1860. Inside the church has a somewhat vernacular appeal, except for the elaborately carved Jacobean pulpit, complete with sounding board and reading desk, which is considerably more sophisticated, as is the attractive Victorian tiled floor.
