Long Description:
This is a Grade II* listed building. The listing includes "Parish church. C12 origins, altered C14 and C15, demolished 1881 and rebuilt 1881 - 5 by Preedy retaining some earlier features. "

"The north porch, reused from the older church and a fine example of late C14 carpentry; gabled and timber-framed on chamfered sandstone base; corner posts are cut back to receive swept arch-
braces, which meet to form a 2-centred archway at the entrance and also against the wall of the nave; these brace the cambered tie-beams and above the entrance arch there is a broad central strut to the collar, shaped like a keyblock and carved with an Annunciation; the bargeboards have a raised scalloped decoration;
each side wall has four renewed lower square panels and, above, an arcade of eight cusped ogee-headed lights; the ceiling is divided into four main compartments by richly moulded ribs with carved bosses at the intersection and subordinate hollow-chamfered ribs. "
