A flint and stone church built at the end of the C14 by John Appleton.
There is a fine west tower of 3 stages with castellated parapet and diagonal
buttresses. A half octagonal staircase turret rises on the south-east
corner. The nave and aisles have battlemented parapets and on the south
side there is an inscription along the parapet seeking prayer, probably
for the soul of John Appleton. There is some flush work and chequerboard
pattern. The south porch has a castellated parapet and some flushwork
ornamentation. The north porch was restored 1827-29 and the chancel was
rebuilt between 1866-69 by William Butterfield. The nave roof has good
moulded and carved beams and the aisles have moulded beams And joists.
The communion rail was taken from the Church of St Michael, Cornhill in
the City of London and is probably the work of Richard Cleere Circa 1670-75.
Graded for its architectural, historical and topographical value.
