Full Description

(First mention of church in reign of Ed I.) The church has a nave with a spacious chancel; a spire steeple with four bells, and is dedicated to St Mary. Within, in a nich, lies a wooden figure of Stephen Radcliff. (1)
Extensive work was undertaken (on the church) in the 1760s. On 21/11/1792 part of the steeple fell, demolishing the roof of the church. Reconstruction started in 1829, the chancel was rebuilt in 1855-9 and the nave, aisles and tower in 1879-80. (2)
See M925 for the late C19 church.
