St. Nicholas' was founded about 1130: the fine and sturdy Norman (or Romanesque) chancel arch has been dated to this time. The solid, metre wide walls also indicate a Twelfth Century origin. In 1846/7 the building was substantially repaired; then the original Norman windows, together with at least one later (perhaps Perpendicular) window, that still survived were replaced with modern Norman look-alikes, and the former west porch was removed and the tower was added.
There are five bells, the two oldest date from 1602 and 1662 and three late Victorian bells were installed in 2010, when the bell dating from about 1500 was stood down after many centuries of ringing out over the landscape.
