The Cotswold village of Sevenhampton lies 6 miles E of Cheltenham. The church, which is sited on the edge of the village on sloping ground, is built of limestone rubble and coursed, dressed and squared limestone. It consists of a chancel, central tower, N and S transepts and nave with S porch. The nave dates to the 12thc., but there was a major rebuild in the 13thc.; the church was enlarged in the early 16thc. The only surviving Romanesque feature is the lintel above the S nave doorway.


In 1066 and 1086 the bishop of Hereford's Prestbury estate included 20 hides at Sevenhampton. By 1241 Sevenhampton was considered to be a separate estate which was held by the bishop until 1559. The church was given to Llanthony Priory by the bishop in 1136.
