Opening times

The church is open during daylight hours.


MK19 6NR

It stands adjacent to a remarkable 15th century dovecote all beautifully preserved by the Churches Conservation Trust.

The 13th century chancel is the oldest part of the building with the nave and tower being rebuilt by Edward Furtho circa 1620.

Also from the period are the octagonal font and some of the windows. Since the early 1990s sensitive repairs have been made leaving a building redolent of its history.
