The church has a chancel, aisled nave and west tower. It is built of boulders with ashlar dressings, 13th-century but with 12th-century masonry in the chancel (Pevsner & Neave, 727). There is herringbone masonry. Many walls in the village use cobbles in this way too.


By 1086 all land was held by Drew de Bevere, then later by the count of Aumale. Monkwick was held by the archbishop who gave it to St John of Beverley (VCHER vii, 174). In 1115, Tunstall and other churches were given to Aumale Abbey.

An illustration of the church in the earlier 19th century is in VCHER VII, 180 fig. 1.
