This is a 12th century church, with the first rector, Adam de Brancestre, being recorded as starting in 1294.  One of the piscina’s in the church has a solid arched headstone, this is possibly from an earlier church that stood on the site of this one.

The church was enlarged in the mid-14th century after it became a parish church and a new tower was added at the same time.

Oak pulpit dated 1615

Coat of Arms of King George III
