A church has existed here since the late 11th century. The earliest surviving fabric dates from the end of the 15th century. It displays multi phase work from the 15th century to the late 20th century, notably the base of the late medieval tower, a rebuilding of the nave and an addition of a particularly attractive portico in 1774 - 7 by local architect George Gibson. Significant monuments including one to Margaret Petrie by Thomas Banks. The church possesses a high order of historic interest at the heart of the former village of Lewisham.
