As the population declined the building was gradually reduced in size and its exterior and interior walls show evidence of a lost north aisle, a west tower and the truncation of the chancel. It is a grade II* listed building standing proud in the tiny hamlet of Great Sturton.
You enter the church through a tiny brick porch sheltering a Norman door into a spacious nave. Long neglected, the church was restored in 1904 by JT Micklethwaite and the west end of the church is taken up with the enormous and impressive frame of the Micklethwaite's tiny bell cote, which he built from reused timbers probably brought from elsewhere. He installed new windows to blend in with the existing medieval and post medieval windows.
On the north wall within this framework are the remains of an early 17th century mural painting supposed to represent time and death. The figure of death is obvious, but the rest is fairly unintelligible.
