The medieval church with its arcades of the 12th and 13th centuries was transformed in the 1890s thanks to Mrs Meynell-Ingram, a wealthy benefactor.

The chancel was rebuilt by Bodley and Garner in Decorated style and a clerestory was added.  The beautiful painted ceilings, the rood screen and the reredos with its triptych all date from this lavish restoration.
