A medieval church on an important historic site restored by Charles Buckridge in 1867-8. Its large churchyard backs onto the site of Gaer Fawr, a Roman fort.

Also in the church are the old village stocks. Some fine stained glass by Clayton and Bell, R J Newberry and Frank Roper.
1 little step into the Church and 2 steps from the nave to the chancel. No handrail.
