The church is situated at the south end of the village some 8 miles east of Kings Lynn. There are Saxon remnants in the west wall. The south aisle has an unusual buttress at the SW corner - starting as an angled buttress at the base it merges into a polygon section and has a conical cap. The north aisle was added in the late 13th century and the south about 1220-40. The 15th century perpendicular style tower is 97 feet tall and can be seen for miles around. The tall slender tower-arch within is particularly impressive and shows signs of earlier springing and gallery floor. The vestry was built in 1856. The Early English font has a cover of 1895. Extensive restoration work was carried out between 1889 and 1895. The organ is 1870's and untouched. There are six bells cast by William Osborne of Downham Market in 1816.

I visited 28 December 2001.
