Long Description:
The church was built in the early 13th century of ironstone, but has had several additions and restorations. The west tower, south porch and clerestory probably date from around 1400 and the chancel was rebuilt in early Victorian times.
Items to note within the building are, the curious square font (this has four different legs and stands on a marble slab with Latin engravings, which possibly outdates the church building); the two gargoyles and the Anglo Saxon abbot's coffin lid set into the vestry wall and the stained glass window showing the arms of the Basset/Ferrers families. Outside the church there is a cross in the churchyard which is complete on a unique, single tall thin shaft.
The church was re-opened in December 1994 after a five year closure for re-roofing and refurbishment
