This stone pulpit possibly dates from the major restoration of the church in 1867-8.

"The church now consists simply of nave and chancel with south transept, west tower and south porch. The north transept collapsed in around 1740 and was not rebuilt.

It is built largely in the local ironstone, and the present building dates essentially from the early 13th century, with rebuilding around 1400. Traces of an earlier, Saxon or Norman, building can however be seen in the north wall of the nave."
