The church has a 13thc. nave, with 14thc. S aisle, and mid 14thc. chancel. The tower is 15thc. or early 16thc. The church was restored in 1877 by Edward Haycock of Shrewsbury. Romanesque sculpture is found on a late 11th - early 12thc. font situated at W end of nave.


DS records that the manor of Berrington was held by Rainald the Sheriff, of Roger, Earl of Shrewsbury, while the church was held by the Abbey of St Peter in Shrewsbury. in 1170, a priest, Andrew, is recorded as being the incumbent (Anderson 1864, 204).





The geometric or stylised plant ornament between (5) and (6) may date from a period later than the 12thc. Pevsner suggests that the font was recut at a later stage.
