Dedicated to James, son of Zebedee, known in England as St James the Great, the original 12th-century building was altered in the 15th century. Further restoration was undertaken in the 1840s and 1850s when the chancel and south aisle were rebuilt. However, the north door is Norman. Pevsner says of it

S. aisle and chancel 1845 and c. 1850. Pulpit – stone, polygonal, probably Perp.
