The current buildings within the moated area are of 19th century date, although the enclosure is believed to have been the site of an earlier manor house"

"The present church is a mixture of Victorian and Medieval styles.

The oldest part is the impressive perpendicular tower, probably dating from the mid 14th century.

The remainder of the church was erected in 1866 replacing a church constructed in 1766"
