"The present day stone church was probably started late in the 12th Century replacing a previous wooden church dedicated to St Mary. A survey conducted in 1994 indicates that the Chancel dates from around 1160.
About 1220 the tower and nave were added. The nave aisles were constructed and a spire raised around 1290."

The furthest font from the door is the oldest, dating from around 1315. The nearest font was a gift from Kingston on Soar, St Winifred, in 1936.
