The church is one of the largest in Rutland. Its impressive, 100 foot tower can be glimpsed across the rolling countryside from several miles distance.
The church is built of local Barnack stone, with a spacious interior. The earliest parts of the church date from the 13th century.
Extensive building work in the 14th century doubled the height of the roof and added the tower. A Victorian restoration and refurbishment was overseen by Sir Gilbert Scott.
Notable features include numerous carved gargoyle heads, and a medieval wooden screen which was imported from the old chapel at St John’s College, Cambridge.
