The church of St.Peter and St.Paul is largely early C15th but has had considerable Victorian restoration, especially the chancel, 1853. The roof is of considerable interest being originally erected in 1421, much of the original single hammer beam roof remains and is a sight worth seeing with angels and tracery.

The Font is plain, octagonal, and created in the C19th, it is on a single, central octagonal post with multi-chamfered foot and head all on a small base, there is an older font lying on floor nearby. It is in front of the War Memorial which is in the blocked north doorway. The font cover is timber with a simple raised cross and wheel decoration.

The co-ordinates are for the south porch entrance to the church.
