This church was built in 1876-9 to designs by J. L. Pearson. It has an early 12th-century font with geometric decoration.


In 1066, Chute formed part of an estate called Collingbourne, which was held by St Peter’s abbey, Winchester. The estate, assessed at 10 hides and ½ virgate, later became divided into the manors of Chute and Collingbourne Valence, the latter being in Collingbourne Kingston. The abbey (known as Hyde abbey from 1109) held the overlordship of Chute until the Dissolution (VCH vol. XVI, 108-120).
