The church is a grade 1 listed, semi-detached church which until the dissolution of the monasteries was the Abbey’s infirmary chapel. Its interior fittings are seventeenth century, including some box pews. It is small and is frequently described as “quaint” and/or “charming”. About 7 years ago it was given a thorough structural overhaul, costing more than £100,000 and paid for by various grants, which its grade 1 listing made relatively easy to obtain. There is no vestry or any other facility there, but recent work has improved the heating of it and it is generally viewed as a lovely place to be.

The churchyard around the church is full, but a field on the edge of the village was acquired many years ago and opened as an extension churchyard and this is still open. It is about 5 or 10 minutes’ walk away from the church.
