St Mary’s church was built by the Knights Templar in the late twelfth or early thirteenth century.
The building consist of a nave, central tower and chancel, all arranged in a East – West line. there is a small porch in the southern corner and a vestry in the north, all standing in a small churchyard.
The church tower is original and about 10 feet square and of a style which has elements of the late Norman and early English periods.
The nave is entered from the fifteenth century porch and probably dates from the thirteenth century and is thus probably a later addition to the original building. It is decorated with wall paintings which span six centuries, some of which were only rediscovered in the 1960s.
The church has become a regular filming location for the BBC’s Crandford series and has also been a location for other major films.
