A church existed here before the Domesday Book, probably from the late Saxon period. Nothing of that has survived and the earliest work now present is 12th Century.
The tower, as is often the case, was added much later, during the 15th Century. It seems that the Civil War caused a lot of damage and a rebuild was carried out in the late 17th Century, at which time the oldest two bells in the tower were installed.The Victorians, inevitably, rebuilt much of the nave, and the last major addition was the clock in the tower which was added to commemorate the Coronation of King Edward VII in 1903.
