The earliest parts of the church of St German are the tower and chancel arches which date from circa 1200.

The nave was rebuilt in 1796, with further restoration in the nineteenth century, and the chancel was rebuilt in 1904.

The Perpendicular upper stage of the tower may date from 1590 when the bells were re-hung.
