A church has existed on this site since at least the early 12th century. In 1136, the Lord of the Manor, Geoffrey de Mandeville, gave the church as an endowment to Walden Abbey in Essex.

The rebuilding of the church in the late 15th century obliterated almost all traces of the earlier building. In 1772, the church building was encased in brick, and wooden galleries and window frames fitted. This wooden tracery was removed in the 19th century and a south aisle was added.

The churchyard lies mainly to the southwest of the church, mainly grass with sparse gravestones and a few trees. The writers, Charles and Mary Lamb (authors of Tales from Shakespeare) are buried in the churchyard, and there is a memorial to Charles Lamb and to the poet William Cowper inside the church.
