There is a little 14th-century stonework remaining. The steeple dates from the 15th century, partially rebuilt 1776–77 by John Cheshire. Otherwise the church dates from a design (1879–90) by J. A. Chatwin. It contains many old monuments including an alabaster knight of c. 1360 and a sandstone lady of c. 1490.
The church had a 3 manual pipe organ built by Banfield in 1901.
