This is one of the oldest churches on the borders of the Forest of Dean, built in the early part of the 12th century, however, alterations and additions have been made throughout the middle ages and a 19th century restoration was also carried out. The central tower is the most striking external feature as well as the sundial on the south porch.

One of the most interesting features inside the church is the corkscrew staircase which leads to the unusual c1500 stone pulpit. There are also two fonts, one of which is 15th century whereas the other is believed to be a hollowed out Roman altar. Some medieval glass survives in a tiny upper window in the chancel east wall. Also in the chancel there is a 13th century tombstone with an incised cross and chalice. The churchyard contains a memorial to David Mushet who was a metallurgist whose experiments revolutionised the steel industry. Also in the churchyard, there are little almshouses given by benedict Hall in the 17th century. 

 Ancient standing stones can also be seen in the parish.
