Introduction

The present church is Victorian, but it replaced a Norman church which, from the early fifteenth century, was held jointly with Kneesall.

The two were not separated until 1866 when Boughton became a perpetual curacy, and plans were drawn up for a new church in 14th Century style. This was built in the 1860s and dedicated in 1868.

Since 1987 the benefice of Boughton has been united with Ollerton.
