St Mary's is a remote church, but worth a visit. Approached through an avenue of yew hedges, it lies 1.5 miles from its village.

The tower has Norman, Early English and Perpendicular parts; the nave is Early English, the rest of the church Perpendicular and Victorian.

(In 2011, the friendly priest-in-charge hailed from Texas.)
