The building was constructed in the 14th century, with a 15th century Font and the Tower is early 15th century. The Ogee shaped door head occurs both over the Priest’s door at the East-end, South-end, and the entrance door to the tower. This suggests one continuous style and therefore with date between 1300 and 1450. Similar to other churches in the area, the builders made good use of stone that was available. Consequently there are some decorated pieces in the walls possibly taken from a Roman building on or near the same site. The Church was restored in 1882.
