There has been a church on this site since the C9, but nothing remains of the small Saxon church as it was made of wood. It is believed it was thatched and had a typical rounded east end or apse.
The oldest part of the church that remains is part of the early C12 Norman former north wall and entrance that now forms the vestry. The rest of the nave and chancel is mediaeval (C13-16) ranging from Early English (C13 lancet window and the piscina and sedilia) through to the later Decorated/Perpendicular styles as shown by the East window. The tower and porch were added in the C14, the splendid hammer beam nave roof in the C15, and the south aisle with its roof with wonderful carved bosses (with two 'green men' and King David playing a harp) in the late C15/early C16.
Information about the church can be accessed by clicking on the links shown to the left of this page. More information is in process of being added as we build the website.
The church is usually open for visitors to explore and enjoy. The tower hosts the equipment for the wireless broadband that is beamed out to the local community. The church also has free wireless broadband for use by visitors to the church so you can access these web pages on your laptop or smartphone. We are in process of putting QR squares on items of interest in the church and churchyard, so if you have a QR browser on your smartphone or tablet you can take a self-guided tour of the church. There is a children's area at the back of the church for youngsters to enjoy while you look round.
Please be aware that our church is a mediaeval building and that the floor of the church is uneven. There are also various height steps throughout the church which all pose a trip hazard. The pews are old and may be slightly unstable. If you visit the churchyard, please be aware that the ground is uneven.
There is limited parking in the churchyard and please be aware the church is located on a dangerous bend, so take care when entering or exiting. We are afraid there is no toilet at the church; the nearest public toilets are off the square in Wickham Market (approximately 1.5 miles).
We hope you will find time to visit us to enjoy the peace, beauty and tranquillity our church offers.
