Small church of Saxon origin with C12/C13 and C15 additions and major restoration 1861 to 1862 by H John Norton.

The Nave ceiling is at risk of loss in several areas, and parts have been roped off for safety in the past. The church was offered a Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant and in 2017-18 the nave and south porch roofs were recovered, and ceilings repaired. The chancel, north aisle and north porch roofs remain in poor condition.
