Sadly I didn't read the sign telling of the location of the key before I walked up the path to the church - what a pity, but a great excuse for another visit!
The brick church was consecrated in 1505 having been built on re-claimed marsh land at the instigation of Sir Richard Guldeford.
It has a simple rectangular plan and the windows and roof were altered in the 18th century.
The church contains fine box pews, a three-decker pulpit and contemporary tablets containing the ten commandments. There are also the Royal Arms of George IV.
One source states: "Though one of the plainest ancient churches in the county, the pale, gentle light inside makes it one of the loveliest."
