The church comprises a medieval W tower and nave, restored and reroofed in the 1860s, and a chancel of 1895. Romanesque sculpture is found in the reset S and N doorways, the former within a later porch and the latter blocked, and on a fragment reset into the interior chancel wall.


In 981 Elfleda, sister of King Ethelred, granted the manor of Hinton to St Peter's Abbey, Gloucester, which held it until the Dissolution. The church is first documented in 1200, when it belonged to Gloucester Abbey. The parish was transferred from Gloucestershire in 1931.

Interior Decoration


Stratford in Pevsner 1968 (197) compares the drapery-like carving of the N doorway capitals with decoration at Beckford and Eldersfield, among other places. It is probably by another, less skilled hand.
