The church was built in the 13th century. It underwent Victorian restoration in the 19th century.
The parish is part of the benefice of Charlton Musgrove, Cucklington and Stoke Trister with Bayford, within the Diocese of Bath and Wells.
The stone building has clay-tiled roofs. It has a three-bay nave and two-bay chancel. The two-stage tower was rebuilt in 1705. It is supported by corner buttresses. The tower contains six bells, three of which were cast in 1726. The Cupola on the top of the tower, described by Pevsner as “pretty” was constructed in 1705.
In the churchyard is a cross which was erected as a memorial to the men of the village who died in World War I.
