A C13 and C14 church, with a tall, late Perpendicular tower on the crossing. It received Historic England/Heritage Lottery Fund grants in 2009, 2011 and 2012 which completed repair projects to recover roofs to the north of the church, the south aisle roof and re-new the parapet gutters to the south nave and transept. Repairs to the chancel east end roofing have also been completed; funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme and a second grant has been accepted.
