Irnham Hall was built for Sir Richard Thimbleby in the early 16th century and was an active centre for Catholicism for a long period.

Sir Geoffrey Luttrell was the owner of the estate in the previous century.

"St Andrew's Church is late Norman with Perpendicular additions, and was heavily restored in 1858, and again in 2006.

It holds the tomb and Easter Sepulchre of Geoffrey Luttrell, who commissioned the Luttrell Psalter, a celebrated medieval manuscript, in the early 14th century"
