The current church building has a chancel and some other parts dating from the 12th century with further work undertaken in the 15th century including the east end and tower. Here can be found some features which have survived changes in worship practice over hundreds of years.

At the battle, the Tudor prevailed and King Richard (age 32 yrs)  was killed, the last such English king to fall in battle.
