The church is of c.1500, possibly incorporating the nave and chancel of an earlier church. The chancel E wall is of random red sandstone rubble and may be part of the earlier fabric; the rest of the building is of coursed red sandstone rubble. The church has N and S aisles, a S porch, an outer S aisle added as an Edgcumbe family chapel, and a W tower. There is a 12thc font, which was brought from St Merryn.
In 1086, Reginald held Maker from the count of Mortain.
