Grade I listed

The church dates from the 13th century onwards, and was restored in the late 19th and early 20th century.
There is a four stage western tower, nave with clerestory and aisles, chancel, and south porch.

The tower dates from the 13th century and has a battlemented parapet. The height of the tower was increased when the rest of the church was enlarged in the 14th century. It was restored in 1882.

The chancel arch is from the 13th century and has two corbel heads.
The south aisle dates from the 15th century the exterior has gargoyles. The south porch is also from that date.

The nave arcades are of five bays with octagonal piers and are 14th century.
The chancel is of brick and dates from 1781.
The nave and chancel roofs are from the late 19th century with painted panels.
There is a 15th century octagonal font, which is quite unusual, although there is a similar one at Covenham Saint Bartholomew (it has now been removed to Manchester.)
The elaborate carvings depict Virgin Mary and Jesus, Saints Simon and Jude, Saint James The Less, Saint Bartholomew and more. There are figures around the stem depicting various Saints, and at the base, the symbols of the four evangelists, viz: a Lion, Eagle, Ox and Angel.
There are two incised slabs from the late 15th century.

The church was restored in 1869, at a cost of 1000.

St Margaret's has an old Forster and Andrews barrel organ from 1851, and a one manual Forster and Andrews organ, still in use.
