Summary Description

The church was probably founded by the Raleigh family in the 13th century, Rectors are recorded since 1258. The church was rebuilt in the late 15th or early 16th century, of which building the tower remains. The rest was rebuilt to match in 1844 by R D Gould, with a grant from the Incorporated Society for the enlargement, building, and repairing of churches and chapels. It appears the dedication was changed from St Peter at this time. The rebuilt parts match the Perpendicular style of the tower, the nave and slightly lower and narrower chancel under steep roofs with cross finials to the coped gable ends.
