The church was built in Norman times, dating from the 1200's. Although there are still some Norman parts to the church, other areas date from subsequent centuries. It is unusual in having a wooden tower, which dates from the 1700's. Originally it held four bells, but now there are eight.

The church is thought to have been originally dedicated to the Virgin Mary, but at some time the dedication changed to that of St. Peter. This had certainly taken place by 1886, but quite possibly much earlier, perhaps at the Reformation. The church may well have been built on the site of a Saxon church, but none is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.
