Local signage near the lych gate states :-

"An impressive survivor of a deserted medieval settlement and lovingly restored in the late 19th century, this church has served this scattered community for about nine hundred years.

The tower with its peal of six bells has a Norman base, heightened in Perpendicular style.

The west door, lancet windows and blank arcading are Early English.

An impressive Rood Screen fills the Chancel Arch.

The Barkham family followed by The Bethlem Hospital were one time patrons and local land owners.

Enter the churchyard by the lych gate and experience its unique peace and tranquillity"
