Just off the A1092, this is a small, rather insignificant flint church at the end of the village. It has a low brick battlemented square tower, The nave and chancel have a steep hipped roof and there is an unusual timber frame south porch. It was in a poor state of repair in 1960, when responsibility for the nave, tower and porch were handed over to the Churches Conservation Trust. The parish converted the chancel for use as their church. This is separated from the nave by a glass petition covered by a curtain.

The church is small and compact but well cared for. There are a few wooden pews , small modern font and a table altar under the the big east window.

On the north wall is the splendid canopy tomb of Margaret Boteler d1410. The tomb is set under a decorated ogee arch with painted shields around it.

The door in the south porch was locked when we visited, but the connecting door in the glass shield was open. The nave is no longer used and feels cold and damp. It had been a big nave, now too big for the small number of parishioners. The furnishings are still there; the old wooden pews, 15thC font with quadrifoils round the bowl and flower motifs below and the 15thC hourglass pulpit. There is an old bier base under the tower as well as the ladder to the bell chamber is still under the tower. There is a Benefactors board. At the back of the nave is a brightly painted old plough. There is small table altar on the east wall.

There are remains of wall paintings on the north wall which the guide book describes as Nativity scenes. There are angels, haloed figures and we could just make out the outline of a swaddled baby.

There isn’t a lot to see in the church, although the Botelier tomb is nice. This isn’t one that is worth going out of your way to find. The church is open 10-4 and there is parking outside.
