The church was built in the 12th century, although there had been a previous Saxon church on the site long before and the base of the tower may include part of the fabric of the earlier building. The church was consecrated by the Bishop of Worcester in 1269.
The bells in the tower were rehung in 2012.
The limestone building has stone slate roofs. It consists of a nave with a north aisle and porch, a chancel and a west tower. The chancel still has its original trussed rafter roof. The four-stage tower is supported by buttresses for the first two stages. The eaves are supported by corbel tables.
The interior includes at tub font from around 1200 and an altar table from the 17th. The rest of the fittings are 19th or 20th century. A set of 12 carved wooden paques depicting the life of christ are thought to be Flemish and date from the 16th century.
