The Church

The Church is located in the north of the village and is situated in a small church yard, which is grassed and contains a number of trees. The church building is listed Grade II*. It consists of a nave, chancel, north vestry, south porch and tower. The nave dates back to the fourteenth century and may have possibly been the rebuilding of an earlier nave, as there are indications that the Church is of twelfth century origin and the Anglo-Saxon Saints name suggests that Christian Worship could have taken place on the site much earlier.

The chancel dates back to the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The tower was added and the porch rebuilt in the mid nineteenth century and the vestry added at the end of the nineteenth century. The rood screen is of oak and is a fine piece of fifteenth-century woodwork with elegant tracery. The square Norman style font dates from the twelfth century. The pulpit is eighteenth century with an inlaid sounding board above the pulpit. Most of the windows contain stained glass including some of fifteenth century origin. All these features combine to create a Church interior which is quite distinctive from the other three South Rodings Churches.

The Church has three bells which are in regular use and a well kept Church yard. The Church has heating and electricity but no kitchen or toilet facilities at present. However there is a tap connected to the mains water supply in the Church yard. In 2003 the Church received a substantial redecoration paid for by a village resident. The Church is open for visiting seven days a week.
