The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book and according to the church website, "there are references to the appointments of clergy during C13". The current building dates from the 15th Century and likely replaces an earlier building.
The church and surrounding was said to be haunted by the ghost of a former village Squire, Sir Roland Alston. His earthly demise was said to be the result of an entanglement with the Devil himself. Consequently, his ghost on horseback was sighted riding through the village and up to the front door of the church, where he would dismount and run into the church. On some occasions, he was even followed by a demonic form with horns and hooves.
