The building is a good example of a small Devon Parish church, Perpendicular period. The timeline appears to be 13th century Tower, possibly rebuilt in 17th, 14th century Chancel, Nave and South aisle 15th century and bench ends 16th century. It has its original barrel roof with carved and decorated bosses. The bench ends are unique with no two alike. The tower houses a peal of six bells. The twisted spire was badly damaged by lightning in 1976 and was restored by wonderful fundraising efforts, locally and further afield. there is much history both here and in East Worlington regarding the civil war.
The church likes to maintain the traditional language and offers only the book of Common Prayer for those who seek the poetry of this version of worship.
