The first recorded priest of the church was Richard de Grangiis in 1279 but the present building is almost entirely a 15th century structure, considerably embellished around 1840. The rood screen extends across the nave and aisle and is a delight to the eye but the intricate carving does tend to separate the small choir and organist from the rest of the church. A local band ring the bells hanging in the tapering tower; the Local Ministry Team, small choir and regular organist all help to maintain welcoming weekly Sunday morning services. This together with various other activities gives a Christian presence in the village.
