Most of the church is 14thc. with later medieval additions, with restorations in 1842, 1878, 1917 and 1965. Part of the nave wall may be 12thc., but the main object of interest for the Corpus is the 12thc. font.


The manor was valued at £5 in 1086 in the Domesday Book. There is very little documentation of the church until Walter de Turberville, lord of Ansty manor, nominated a priest to serve the church, some time before 1210.
