An interesting unrestored church consisting of a nave, N and S aisles, chancel, N chancel chapel and W tower. Most of this work is 13thc, excluding the upper part of the tower, windows in the N aisle and the chapel. There is a stiff-leaf capital of c. 1200 in the N arcade and two re-set carved corbel stones, one in the S chapel and one in the N chancel chapel.


Lubenham seems to have been a prosperous parish in Norman times, landowners in Domesday Survey include the Archbishop of York.
