The church mainly dates from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. Unusually for this area the tower is topped by a needle spire. A stained glass window above the children’s altar is believed to have been designed by Edward Burne-Jones who was the glass designer for William Morris.
The church is used as a venue for a variety of community events throughout the year. The repairs will provide an opportunity to develop a heritage and learning project exploring the link between nearby Thornton Abbey, the village and the church. This multifaceted project will appeal to the local and wider community.
