St Peter’s church is a simple, single-celled building, comprising a chancel and nave of stone with a western turret with two openings but containing a single bell.

The masonry and two lancet windows generally give a 13th century date though the Norman font may be the oldest part of the church. A long rough hewn chest is probably 13th century too.

A south aisle was pulled down in the 17th  or 18th century. By the mid-19th century the church was dilapidated. Then the chancel was restored and a partition put up between chancel and nave, leaving the nave unused.

The church was fully restored by 1928.
