St Margaretís, Roughton, has a Perpendicular brick tower on a greenstone base, nave with Transitional doorways and a chancel from the late thirteenth-century.

The interior contains some old woodwork and a wonderful monument to Norreys Fynes (died 1735), a non-juror and estate steward. A welcoming church.
