Long Description:
There has been a church on this site since at least AD867, and it is a grade 1 listed building and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

There has been a stone building here since 1181, and in 1757 the bell tower was added. 6 bells were then installed in 1759 and are still in use today. They were made by Lester and Pack of London.

3 of the bells have mottoes on them.
"Kind Heaven Increase Their Bounteous Store And Bless Their Souls For Evermore"
"We two are hung within this steeple By gift of well disposed people"
"Our voiced shall, with joyful sound, Make Hills and Valleys echo"
