The church stands in the SW corner of the village and consists of a single-aisled 12thc building with a W tower of the 13th and 14thc, and a late 16thc N porch. Evidence remains of a late 13th or 14thc S aisle. There are two small, round-headed 12thc windows in the N wall of the chancel. Further 12thc survivals include another small, round-headed window on the N side of nave, and the N and S nave doorways. The exterior of the N doorway is decorated with sculpture. The S doorway is now blocked; there are reset fragments with chevron decoration above this doorway on the interior and also to the left of it on the exterior. The chancel was restored in 1740, and the nave and tower in 1892.


In 1086, Stanton-upon-Hine Heath was held by Earl Roger. Roger's tenant was Reginald the Sheriff, whose sub-tenant was Richard. Domesday Book records a church and a priest.
