The church is built of flint and stone in a chequerboard pattern, and consists of a chancel and a nave with a large S transept. During the 19th-century restoration, the 12th-century door was incorporated into the S side of the nave. Some of the stones were reused from the old church.


As recorded in the Domesday Survey, in 1086 land at Little Langford was in the hands of the abbots of Glastonbury and Wilton, and of Edward of Salisbury. No church is mentioned.
