The church comprises nave and chancel and a turret at the W end of the nave (to give access to the bells). The church was originally 12thc. in its entirety but the chancel was rebuilt in the 14thc. and the S porch added in the 18thc. Archaeological evidence demonstrates that there was probably an earlier church on this site (see VII). The church is covered in render apart from the E angles of the nave which are brick.
At the time of DS Robert de Limesey held the manor of Bygrave. VCH records that the church was given to St Albans Abbey by William de Wedona.
