The church, mostly 14th century with Victorian refurnishing, stands within a churchyard mentioned in the Domesday Book, well known for its yew trees and is on the highest point overlooking the Stour Valley towards Long Melford and Lavenham. It contains the 16th century monuments of William Waldegrave and his wife and a daughter.
