Feature Sets

The church consists of a nave, chancel, N aisle, S porch and a low W tower. The N aisle is separated from the nave by two 12thc piers and responds. The present church belongs to the 15th and 16thc.


The 1291 Taxatio valued the church at £16 per annum as part of the estates of Welbeck Abbey. The church was given to the abbey of Welbeck by Archbishop of York (1154-81) Roger de Pont l'Eveque on the 5th of November, 1199 when King John confirmed this grant.
