The church was largely rebuilt during restoration around 1860.
The font is Norman with tiny volutes at the edges and a top frieze of something like lambrequins. These have been described as the remains of locking staples used to prevent witches stealing the holy water. The stained glass has various 16th-century Flemish bits in the south aisle window.
The two stage west tower contains a bell dating from 1773 and made by Abraham Bilbie of the Bilbie family.
The parish is part of the benefice of Publow with Pensford, Compton Dando and Chelwood within the archdeaconry of Bath.
