St Nicholas church sits on a hill with commanding views to the south and west.
It dates back to Norman times and there is evidence of the remains of a nearby Norman castle.
The church's font is early 13th century. The squat tower was added in the 15th century and has an unusual "water colour paint" appearance because of the render.
It has four bells two of which are particularly old. Work is underway to get these ringing again.
