The church is the largest of the three in the parish and there are services every day except Saturday. It is of 12th century origin although extensive alterations were undertaken in 14th century. It was largely rebuilt in the 18th century and the last major change was the addition of transepts in 1968.

Recent minor improvements have been the removal of pews to allow a social area, a sound system and the acquisition of a fine organ in 1997.

Normally the church is open for visiting every morning from 10:00am to mid day and you will receive a warm welcome from parishioners who will offer a guided tour with refreshments if you wish. One of the clergy, Peter, Joy or Steve, are often there as well if you would like to talk to them.  Otherwise, Pauline, the administrator, can make you an appointment. 

The churchyard is well maintained and covers about 3 acres. It is well worth a visit in its own right with headstones dating from the 18th century.
