The parish church dedicated to Saint Mary the Virgin is a Grade I listed building. It has two Norman doorways. The chancel was built late in the 13th century in the Early English Gothic style, and at its east end has a trio of stepped lancet windows. The building was restored by William Butterfield in 1861-63, who added a distinctive corbelled bellcote on the roof above the chancel arch. The west tower has a ring of six bells.
In the churchyard near the entrance is a medieval standing cross that is a scheduled Ancient Monument.
The church can be reached only on foot, via a path linking the lychgate with the east end of The Street.
