The church is mainly 13th century and was originally situated at the location of St Wilfrid’s first monastery and cathedral at Church Norton, some 2 miles from the present centre of population. In 1864-66 the church was dismantled stone by stone and re-erected in its present position, only the chancel remaining at the old site.
The church has an Elizabethan chalice and a late Norman font that is arcaded in marble standing on a central shaft surrounded by four small shafts.
Here is a view of the church from an early twentieth century postcard - the creeper has grown over the porch in the intervening years!
