The present church has stood there for some 700 years or more; the earliest parts such as the porch date from the 13th century. The chancel was put up in the five years 1347-52, and is an outstanding example of the decorated period of architecture; the beautiful tracery of the east window with its seven tall lights is mentioned in many national guidebooks. The rest of the church dates from the 15th century.
