History

The greater part of the church as it now exists belongs to the thirteenth century period but is a development of a much earlier building, possibly the Tythe Barn, of which the South-west angle and the West window remain. The original stone building had an aisle less Nave approximately of the same size as at present. During the C13th a tower and re-modelled Chancel were added. In C15th the church was enlarged by the addition of a bell tower stage in the tower and new windows. The greater part of the building we see today is as a result of the major restoration undertaken during the incumbency of Edward Bayley at the turn of the C19th. Further restoration work was completed in the 1980s, especially to the South Porch, resulting in the present well maintained and beautiful, working church. The building is a silent spiritual witness to the living faith which has endured for centuries at the centre of the village
