Summary Description

A modest medieval church surrounded by a grassy churchyard set at the centre of its settlement at the highest point, so the tower and its small spire can be seen from most approaches. Two features suggest a church has existed here from at least the early twelfth century, but most of the fabric is from the fourteenth and fifteenth century. The west tower and north aisle were rebuilt 1727-9 by George Portwood and the nave roof is also post-medieval. Three medieval features are of high significance: the c.1120 font, the c.1400 south wall paintings and the late-medieval bishop’s indent.
