The current building is 200 years old, there has been a church on this site since the 10th century.
When a drawing labelled 'Mr Chetwynd's tower' turned up among Wren's papers, it began to seem fairly certain that this fine church of the 1670s was indeed the work of the architect of St Paul's Cathedral.
The quality of the interior at Ingestre, such as the carved screen and the exquisite plaster ceilings, is certainly worthy of a building designed by a master.
The richly carved pulpit and tester are by the renowned Dutch born wood carver Grinling Gibbons, and carry his peapods motif. The Chetwynd coat of arms sits is the door, and several family tombs and monuments are in the church.
