Feature Sets

The largely 15th-century church consists of a chancel, nave, a 13th-century W tower, and S porch. The font is the only Romanesque carving in the building.


At the time of Domesday Book, Ansger the cook, Godwine 'Clec', William Corniole, and Ealdhild, held estates at Hilperton. Ealdhild's husband held her land there before the Conquest. No church is mentioned.





The church was largely rebuilt in 1852 by TH Wyatt.
