The Church of St. Mary Magdalene is unusual in that it is the surviving Chapel of the Castle of Essendine which has long since vanished leaving only a moat to mark its passing.
The Church has a particularly fine Norman doorway and was originally only the lower half of this building. The second half was rebuilt at a later date, probably during the 1600s, and then completely rebuilt once more early in the 19th Century.
