The oldest part of the building is the Bell Tower (dating from around 1200) and this is now used as social space. The nave, chancel and south aisle were originally built in the 14th century and re-built and extended in Victorian times. Within the last five years, repair and restoration work has been carried out for which both grant aid and community support were received.
