The church has a 12th to 13thc. chancel and nave. The nave has a S aisle of the mid-13thc. The tower is substantially 19thc. but the tower arch remains from the late 13thc. or 14thc. Romanesque sculpture is found on the late 12thc. font.


At the time of DS the manor was held by Tochil from Rainald the Sheriff (under Earl Roger). Before the conquest it was held by Elric. The church is not mentioned until the Taxation of 1291.
