Construction of the nave of St Mary Magdalene started around 1100 and the tower was added in the 15th century. The original pews at the rear of the church date back to the 16th century.

The church has a fine 14th century pulpit, carved from one piece of solid oak. From this pulpit John Wesley preached at Evensong on 3rd October 1725, two weeks after his ordination.

This lovely building, which has no electricity, is one of the few examples in the country of a church in its ancient form. Set on a hill, it has spectacular views.
