The church dates from the twelfth century, but was largely rebuilt in 1865 by George Fowler Jones. It consists of a nave, aisles, tower, porch and chancel with a Mortuary Chapel near the family vault of the Coore family. The restoration was funded by Henry and Augusta Coore, in memory of Henry Vane, 2nd Duke of Cleveland. The restoration included rebuilding the south aisle, east end, windows and clerestory. New roofs were erected throughout and new buttresses provided. New red and black tiles were laid in the nave, and the chancel was fitted with encaustic tiles.
It was re-opened by the Bishop of Ripon, Rt. Revd. Robert Biskersteth on 12 November 1865.
