St Lawrence Church is a Grade I listed building with the oldest parts dating back to 1150. The main fabric is Totternhoe flint and stone. The tower dates from 1190 and has a peal of six ringable bells. The interior was part modernised in 1970, following a fire, when a fine Nicholson organ was built. The seating, for around 250, is mainly fixed wooden pews. There is external floodlighting. Two acres of churchyard surrounds the building. This is closed for burials but there is a Garden of Remembrance for the burial of ashes. There is a conservation approach to churchyard maintenance to encourage wildlife.
