The first written evidence of there being a Parish Church in Enfield dates from 1136. Part of the east wall of the church and the south wall of the sanctuary date from 1190, including the lancet-shaped unglazed window in the south wall of the sanctuary, opening today into the Artillery Chapel. Originally, this south wall formed the external wall of the church, and there are even traces in this window aperture of the sockets for the iron framework of the glass.
The 14th century saw much restoration and major enlargements to the church, including the construction of the north and south aisles (although the south aisle was much lower than the north, being raised to its present height only in 1824). The church tower is also 14th century, although much restored and altered in later years. The arches in the nave date from this same period.
