Although this parish has a population of just 30, the church has maintained a regular pattern of services with festivals being especially well attended. The church building dates from before 1300; its carved bench ends depicting saints and virtues are particularly noteworthy. With its attractive rural setting, the church is a popular venue for weddings with receptions being held at the nearby Athelington Hall.
