The church is in the building constructed for Micklegate Priory, a Benedictine foundation under Marmoutier Abbey. The church dates from the 12th century with additions in the 13th and 14th centuries. The tower dates from 1453. The church was remodelled after the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
The south aisle was rebuilt during a restoration between 1850 and 1851 by JB and W Atkinson of York. The body of the building was entirely re-pewed, and a new aisle, 10 feet wide and 60 feet was added on the south side, by opening the original arcades.
The chancel and vestry were rebuilt between 1886 and 1887 by Fisher and Hepper. The chancel was rebuilt and was 38 feet long and 23 feet wide. It included a new vestry and organ chamber.
