Sedding noticed some wrought stonework from the Norman arcade in the N and S walls of the present 15thc. church; otherwise nothing Romanesque survives except the font.
The village name suggests that there was a Celtic monastery here, of which the later manor of Lansallos was the endowment. Of the Norman period almost nothing can be surmised except the evidence of the church, which seems to have been of some importance. The advowson was later a rectory belonging to the Hywysh family of Raphael.
