The tower dates from 1630, but the church itself consists of aisles of 1825 by W. Atkinson between which Arthur Blomfield added a new nave and chancel in 1890-91. The east window is a large Burne-Jones crucifixion by Morris and Co. It is shared with the Methodists under a Local Ecumenical Partnership.
