Much of St Thomasís is 13th century - the large windows are 15th  and 16th century additions.

The oldest features are the south arcade and the chancel arch - both 12th century.

The church has an attractive setting on a hillside close to the Tudor manor house and with farm buildings nearby.

The windows in both the north and south side (here to the right) aisles are thought to date from the Elizabethan period.
