Much of the current church was built in early 16th century, paid for by local farmer and trader Henry Howe, who is remembered by a scroll over the door. Additional funding, possibly by the family of John Poulett, 1st Baron Poulett, paid for the tower which displays their coat of arms with three swords.
The church register dates from 1528. Despite some minor Victorian restoration in 1873 the church fabric is largely as it would have been in medieval times. In 2007 a sixth bell, which had previously been at the Church of St Peter and St Paul in Maperton, was added to the existing peel in the three-stage west tower.
The Anglican parish is part of the benefice of Wellington and district within the archdeadconry of Taunton.
