A church dedicated to St Edmund is first mentioned in 1201. Very few traces of the original church remain, for it was almost completely rebuilt in 1666 by the Marquis of Dorchester, and restored 1878-81.

The present south aisle was the original nave and the vestry/organ chamber was the original chancel, with the family burial vault of the Dukes of Kingston and Earls Manvers beneath.

The monuments are a most interesting feature and range from a stone effigy of a pilgrim to a carved alabaster commemorating Sir Henry Pierrepont. There are wall monuments sculpted by Haxman and one reputed to be the work of Gringling Gibbons. The organ dates from mid 1800s. A stained glass window at the east end is by James Powell. In the churchyard are five Grade II listed monuments and others that date back to the late 18th century. The church is located adjacent to Holme Pierrepont Hall and is surrounded by parkland enabling visitors to enjoy the surroundings in peace.

The whole church is a monument to the loving care given to it by past and present custodians.
