A church is mentioned in the Domesday book, however the present one is 12th century and has been little altered.The church was originally given to the Priory of Saint Pancras in Southover, Lewes.

The church has a central tower which had the original chancel beneath it, dating from 1090.
The nave also dates from this time, and the entrance to the church was at the west end, the font is 13th C.
A Belfry stage was added to the tower around 1200, there are three bells which date from the early 15th century.
A second chancel was built around 1100, and a north aisle in the late 12th century. This has now gone, although the arches may still be seen set into the north wall. A north Chapel was then added in the 13th century.
The chancel has three small lancet windows with an oculus above which were said to be filled in until 1868. The nave windows date from 1868 apart from the south easternmost. Glass is by Wailes, Gibbs,and Powell.

The roof was originally intended to be thatched and has a steep pitch.
The organ is a small single manual with pedals by J. W. Walker, circa 1960.

The church is situated about 30 m east of the zero meridian of Greenwich.
