The present church was built in 1835 to replace the old church dating from 1765. This was built to replace the original church built in 1243.
The Whiteadder Water flows a short distance away from the village and a footpath runs from near the church to the river. A walk past fields and beside the river brings you to Hutton Bridge. About 2.5 miles from the village to the where the Bluestone Ford crosses the river. This can be reached by car or about a 50 minute walk passing a farm and turning right down a steep hill. Ducks and Swans swim peacefully by in a this beautiful tranquil spot.
