Stands on hill looking across to its sister church at Alkerton.  Dating mainly from 14th century, with surviving Norman arch framing organ pipes.  Early English arcade also has carved faces, flowers, foliage.  Intriguing sculpture on exterior of figure with ox.  Church famous for annual custom of ‘grass-strewing’ – floor is strewn with grass for three weeks beginning Whit-Sunday.

Access: Reasonably level from village green: Very steep from main road.  On-street car parking.
