This ancient church was built in 1220. In 1882 the original stone altar was discovered buried under the chancel floor and repaired and incorporated into the present oak table. It was probably hidden to save it either in November 1550 when all altars were ordered to be removed from churches or else during Cromwell's time in the 17th century.
