St Nectan’s church is probably largely 13th century in date, with the north aisle being added in the 15th century. There was restoration and some rebuilding in the 1820’s, and the interior was refurbished in 1885.

No graffiti was found on the stonework of the church, but there are a number of marks on the benches. Most are probably initials, although one or two of the lone W’s or V’s could possibly be apotropaic (protective) marks.
