St Peter and St Paul is a fine and unusually large village church in which all periods of ecclesiastical architecture, up to early 15th century, are well represented. There are numerous monuments in the church dedicated to the Wykeham family. There has been a programme of restoration to the tower which now looks magnificent. A medieval church situated at the highest point of the village, it dates from Saxon times but is mostly constructed from the 13th-15th centuries. Pews dated 1642.
