The Grade I listed church, which is dedicated to All Saints, is built of ironstone and limestone and dates back to the 11th century. It was restored in 1845. It contains monuments to the Payne family and is notable for its Saxon tower with an unusual circular stairway. The top storey of the tower was added during the 15th century. This project required re-roofing of the Chancel following lead theft. Upon removal of the temporary covering, installed after the lead theft, the roof was found to be unsuitable for Terne Coat Stainless Steel covering. The roof needed extensive firring and over boarding to enable works to continue. The existing gutterings were left in-situ and lead repairs were carried out where required.
