The brick tower was built in 1718, using chalk-based stone for structural support and faced with brick. The bells were installed in 1720. With the exception of the tower, the church was completely re-built in 1866, with walls being faced with flint
The 6 bells were cast by Abraham Rudhall II of Gloucester in 1720. They were rehung in 1876 by Whites of Appleton and again in 1921 by Mears & Stainbank.
