On a site of worship since the 13th century, this church was erected in 1795, yet contains an ancient panel in the bell tower that is believed to have come from a nearby Roman wall.

Inside the church contains a wealth of panelling, including the central pulpit with sound board and timber dado. There is also a beautiful gallery along three sides that is supported by wooden columns.

Outside, there are several gravestones of note, including that of Archibald Bulloch, the ancestor of former President Theodore Roosevelt and Roosevelt's niece, the author and activist Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady from 1933-1945.
