The church is a tiny Grade I listed building dating from the second half of the 12th Century. Historic England describes it as a ‘single cell aisleless apsidal church (a very rare form)’. This church is considered to be one of the fine examples in England. Known as ‘the church in the farmyard’ it is adjacent to a petting farm and works closely with this and the community on local events and sharing facilities. The grant will help the church to replace the crumbling ceiling plaster and allow it to open again.
