The Medieval Combat Society
A Norman church possibly as early as 1081, but certainly by 1251 when a rector is first recorded and the rectory was worth £13 6s 8d in 1291. By 1311 it had been dedicated to St Mary. The Chancel, arcades, aisles and tower were built in the 13th century with a refurbished chancel in the 14th and again in the 16th century. The clerestory was built about 1400 as was the timber roof. Further restoration occurred in about 1890.
