The first church in the village was in the 12th century. The advowson was held by Bruton Abbey until the Dissolution of the Monasteries. After this, in 1545 the church was dedicated to St James. The rebuilding in 1790 used stone from the abbey and incorporated some fabric from the medieval church. Victorian restoration occurred in the 1860s. The three stage tower is supported by diagonal buttresses and contains five bells, the oldest of which was cast in Bristol around 1380.
