A large, impressive greenstone church, St Edith’s is mainly 14th century early Perpendicular work.

The spacious interior has four bay arcades and wide aisles, and is well lit by the Perpendicular clerestory windows.

The fine timber roofs are 16th century.

The chancel is unusually wide and the East window has five lights.
