A flint rubble church of the late C14 and early C15. The nave, aisles, chancel and south porch are battlemented and west tower has angle buttresses and a battlemented parapet. The church was built on the site of an earlier church.
The chancel was built in the late C14 and the rest of the church was built at the end of the C14 or the beginning of the C15. The nave has 5 bays with a large clerestorey and original angel roof. The fittings include a C13 octagonal font of Purbeck marble, a C17 carved pulpit on a C15 stem, some C17 monuments and C16 and C17 brasses. There is also some C15 and C17 glass. The church was moderately restored in the C19.
The church is sited close to the moated site of Clavering Castle, and the C13 Manor house ("The Bury"). Graded for its architectural, historical and topographical value. (RCHM 1).
