There has been a church building on this site of the Parish Church of St Andrew and St Mary since the 13th century, and probably much earlier. However the dedication to St Andrew and St Mary dates from around the beginning of the 19th century.

Even for people who don't worship there, the church is a very interesting place to visit, not only because of its architecture and items of historical interest, but also to take advantage of the peace and tranquillity that it offers. The church is often floodlit and makes a very welcoming site for those entering the village at night.
