The medieval church was demolished in 1848, and the present one built by R. C. Hussey, using some of the old stone alongside newly quarried Warwickshire sandstone. The dressings are of limestone. The nave is of five bays with aisles to N and S, and transverse arches as well as the longitudinal ones in both nave and aisles. The chancel has a S chapel, now used as a vestry. The church was restored by Butterfield in 1874. The font is use is a 19thc. affair of coloured marbles, but a damaged and unusable Romanesque font is also kept inside the church.
