The church has a W tower formed from an Anglo-Saxon W porch of the 8th or 9thc. Inside the tower is a elaborate mid-12th doorway. The S aisle is an ambitious Perpendicular structure and the chancel is also structurally probably late medieval. The S chancel chapel is clearly 14thc because of the sedilia and the chancel arcade indicating a mid to later date in the century. The S nave aisle was Romanesque but was unfortunately demolished in 1867, arcade and wall, to make way for a tall and wide Neo-Dec aisle. A capital from the arcade survives in the S chancel chapel.


The lord of the manor was the king. In 1283 the canons of nearby Titchfield Abbey appropriated the rectory, which was worth £53, 6s, 8d in 1291.
