Grade II*listed

A church was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and probably a Saxon church existed before that time. The earliest work in the present church is from the 11th century.
The founder was Gilbert de Gant, who died in 1095 and was buried at Bardney Abbey near Lincoln.

There is a western tower, five bay nave with north aisle, south porch, and chancel.
The lower part of the tower dates from the 12th century, with the upper part having gargoyles and pinnacles being added in the 15th century. There are three bells.
In the north wall of the nave fragments of crosses and a Saxon crosshead have been reused.
The north aisle arcade has both octagonal and cylindrical piers. The western two piers are of a later date. Above the arches there are numerous Shields with the armorial bearings of some of the Lords of the Manor. There are also several hatchments.
There is a hammerbeam roof to the nave, and the interior walls are whitewashed.
The chancel has Norman capitals and is there is a fine monument to William Osbaldeston. There is also the bowl of a Norman font.
In the south porch there is a cobbled floor, and it originally had a priests chamber above.

The church was restored in 1845 and 1904.

In the year 2000 a new "worship area" was created and a new lectern and is communion table were added.

The church was recently awarded money to help with urgent roof repairs.
