The church has N and S aisles, a heavily altered 12thc. chancel with plain round-headed windows, and a 15thc. W tower. Romanesque sculpture is found in the blocked N chancel doorway and S nave arcade.
There was a priest at Hampton-in-Arden at the time of the Domesday Survey. Robert Mobray gave the church to the canons of Kenilworth. The church was appropriated to the canons along with its chapels of Nuthurst and Baddesley Clinton, after a dispute.

Of four bays, with pointed, chamfered arches of two orders.
Pier 1: round, on shallow attic base, with a square, multi-scallop capital above plain necking: nine sheathed scallops to the E face, the sheathing taking the form of an incised saltire on each cone; nine trumpet scallops on S face, with that at the SE angle sharing a ridged cone with the W face; eight sheathed scallops on W and N faces. Hollow-chamfered impost block with a narrow half-roll below the hollow and two grooves on the face. Restored with different materials.
Pier 2: as pier 1, but with heavily mutilated multi-scallop capital, originally square, now rounded; three trumpet scallops remain on E and S sides with rolls between them. A head carved on SE side, and seven later heads on the N side. Round later impost block.
Pier 3: as pier 1, but with double-chamfered base and square multi-scallop capital with the cones replaced by plain upright leaves with rounded tips and hollowed surface, longer at the angles, where the tops furl into small volutes. Eight scallops on the E face, seven on the S and W, eight on the N, the last damaged. Later impost block.
N capital: two sheathed scallops
S capital: one plain scallop, one sheathed, with a half roll at the angle.
