Grade I listed

The church dates from the 11th century onwards, with the tower lower section being the oldest part of the church.
The tower is Saxon with rows of herringbone masonry which originally formed a tower-nave which was the main part of the church. A small chancel was then located to the east of the tower. Parts of the tower contain reused stone taken from Roman buildings in Yorkshire. A semicircular stair turret was added to the tower with the steps and central spine being made separately in a helical concrete tunnel. The upper part of the tower is perpendicular with eight pinnacles.
In the twelfth century the small chancel was demolished when the main part of the church was built. The nave has north and south three-bay arcades with octagonal piers dating from the 14th century, with a north arcade being slightly later.

The chancel is Early English. There is a 14th century monument to the Redford family on the north side of the chancel beneath an arched opening to the north Chapel which was built C1660 for the Anderson family, and contains a tomb chest with a reclining life-size figure.
The chancel also has a late fourteenth century brass on the north side of the altar.

There are several Victorian stained-glass windows.

A vestry was added in the 20th C.

There is a small two manual organ originally by Nicholson and Lord from 1900 and restored in 2012.

There were restorations in the early and the late nineteenth century, and the chancel was re-roofed in 1931. As of 2019 work is about to be done on the tower.
