The north nave arcade dates from the late 12th century and the south arcade from the early 13th century. The north door of the nave is a small round headed door decorated with a roll moulding. The south door, later like the arcade, is a small round headed arch decorated with a chamfer and a small hoodmould. Soon after, probably near the mid 13th century, the north choir aisle was built using details in imitation of Salisbury Cathedral. The west tower is Perpendicular in style but was built by Arthur Blomfield in 1880.


The Domesday Survey records that, in 1086, Hullavington was held by Ralph de Mortimer. Before the Conquest it had belonged to Earl Harold. In the 12th century Hugh Mortimer granted Hullavington manor to the abbey of St Victor (VCH 14, 104-118).
