This small church now consists of a chancel with a vestry, a nave and a S and N transept. The W end of the church is adorned with a polygonal bell turret. From the Norman church remain the arch of the N doorway with early 12th-century detailing, and a fine but eroded Romanesque carved panel reset in a wall by the N door.


The Domesday Survey records Landford being held by Oda, whose father held it at the time of Edward the Confessor. There was a mill, pasture and woodland, and the whole was assesed at 15s. No church mentioned.

The church was almost entirely rebuilt in 1858 to designs by William Butterfield. In 1882 he raised the vestry to create a N transept.
