While the exterior of the church is a result of the 19th-century restoration, the nave arcades originate from the 12th century. There is also a fragment of chevron reset in the W wall of the nave. The chancel has a small, possibly 12th-century priest’s doorway and a 14th-century window.


Domesday Book does not mention Whiteparish but records the settlement of Frustfield, from which Whiteparish evolved. Some land at Frustfield belonged to Humphrey de L'Isle; there were also two tenants, Bernard Pauncevolt and Esbern. The church was not built until c.1190.
