Set in a circular churchyard with it's very own well, there are suggestions that this is a very ancient Christian site. The first dateable object is the Walton Stone, a sea rounded rock carved with a Celtic cross of the 10th century. The oldest part of the buildings is the 14th century tower with it's barrel shaped stone ceiling. The unusual roof line testifies to the gradual extension of the church.

In the tower is a small effigy of a woman, possibly Elizabethan, that was at one time claimed to be a statue of St David. In the north wall there are two medieval incised stones, one a picture of a bell the other a woman's face.
