Accessibility

The toilet is equipped to the level required by wheelchair users. Ramps, which are necessary for wheelchair access, are available.

The access road to the church is narrow and provides only a very limited space for parking two or three cars.

There is a defibrillator in the red 'phone box' in the centre of the village.

Moveable ramps can be provided at the stepped entrance. Advance notice is necessary


Our Building

The church is listed grade 2. The tower, believed to date from about 1240AD, is the oldest identifiable structure but some traces of an older nave can be found. The major part of the building dates from a reconstruction in about 1300AD by Walter de Langton, Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry. A clerestory running the whole length of the nave and chancel was added during the early fifteenth century


Music and Worship

There are three bells on plain bearings. They are serviceable, but infrequently rung
