Introduction

This small building is built of stone, chiefly Perpendicular but with Early English survivals. It consists of a chancel, nave, south porch and single bell turret at the east end.

It was heavily rebuilt and over-restored in 1879, the chancel by Ewan Christian, the nave by HM Townsend; this resulted in a new north wall with re-used lancets, new south windows and bellcote.

In the porch is a Saxon grave marker. The Saxon cross is said by some to be the oldest ecclesiastical item in Nottinghamshire.

This church is currently being researched, a full entry will appear in due course.
