There has been a church on the site since Saxon times and St Chad is even thought to have preached there. The base of an early preaching cross was found in the mid-1980s during work at the back of the church.
The present building is Victorian, dating from the 1860s by architect Yeoville Thomason. The tower is far older and is all that remains of the medieval church. It is believed to date from the 14th century. The sanctuary was rebuilt during 1974/5 after a fire.It is a Grade II listed building.
The artist David Cox is buried in the churchyard and there is a sanctuary memorial window to him.
Fellow watercolour artist Thomas Baker is buried next to David Cox.
The bells were purchased from the church of Bishop Ryder in Deritend and installed by John Taylor of Loughborough. The ring of eight was dedicated on 2 March 1963. The tenor bell weighs nearly 13 cwt and the ring is in F#.
The organ dates from 1975, replacing a previous instrument destroyed in a fire. The organ specification was designed by George Miles, the church organist, and can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register
