This parish church was built in the 13th century but largely remodelled in 1609 when the aisles were removed. It was restored in 1865. The roof has been described as remarkable because of its stone vaults, which have medieval details, and because it is roofed in stone slabs of alternating single and double thickness. This is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
