The first Church was built on the present site of the chancel c700 AD as a wooden structure, which, in later years, being re-built of stone. Late 11th. century onwards, saw more re-building works and alterations carried out by the Norman Overlords. A tower and spire were added during the early 13th. century. Around one hundred years later, Hartshill stone was used to re-face the tower, this is what we still view today in the 21st. century.
