This is a small church with a 13th-century chancel, a nave of the 14th or 15th century, and a Perpendicular W tower. The bowl of the font is the only Romanesque carving that has survived.


At the time of the Domesday Survey, Liddington belonged to the church of Shaftesbury. It had 2 mills, meadow and a pasture. Its value increased from £18 in TRE to £22 in 1086. No church is mentioned.





The church was restored in the 1880s.
