St Andrews is a grade one listed round towered church. Considered by English Heritage to be one of the finest medieval churches in England. It has a nave and chancel largely unchanged since the perpendicular windows were fitted in the 15th century. Its round ironstone conglomerate tower is one of the stoutest in England and has a newly conserved Tudor brick octagonal top.

The chancel has some fine marble memorials and a magnificent statue of Sir Richard Soames carved by Singleton. The nave and chancel roof was replaced in 1902 after the old roof collapsed. The Porch has a fine brick gable and with the North Nave windows was restored in 2011

St Andrews has a light airy feel and is truly a place suitable for the glory of God.
