Grade I listed

The church dates from the 13th century onwards and was restored in 1875.
There is a western tower, nave and aisles, south porch, chancel and north vestry.
The tower was rebuilt in the mid 18th century after the previous one fell down. It is topped with stepped battlements and eight pinnacles. There are several interesting gargoyles and carved figures on the tower.

The nave has a clerestory with five, three light windows. There are gargoyles on the exterior.

The nave aisles are of three bay arcades, originally dating from the early 13th century. The south aisle was built in brick in the mid 18th century, and the north aisle windows are Victorian reproductions.

The large 14th C. Chancel has a triple arched piscina with vaulting, double basins and is pinnacles. It has large windows and the east 6 light window was rebuilt in 1875. There is also an Easter Sepulchre similar to Heckington.
The chancel arch has a rood stair and a corbel of a lady wearing a wimple.

The font is Victorian, and the rood screen dates from 1910.
There is also a late 13th century grave slab with an inscription which says "Pray for Richard de Lue".
