Parts of the transept date from c. 1200, and parts of the aisles from the late 13th century. Most of the church was rebuilt in Perpendicular style c. 1444, under William Alnwick, the Bishop of Lincoln. The west tower, which is 108 feet (33 m) high, was built at that time. It contains a ring of 14 bells including a flat sixth.
The organ dates from 1773 but is now much enlarged. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
