There was a Saxon church mentioned here in the Domesday Book, however it was rebuilt in the 12th century, being consecrated on 1160. The tower is part of this early church however it changed much over the years.  The chancel was the original nave, this was lengthened in the 14th century when the south aisle was also added.

































The large font is believed to be Norman.



This church has a very impressive organ







There was a devastating fire in 1972
