St Denis's Church is a Grade II listed redundant church. It was built in 1217 by the local community using field-stones, and extended in the 1300s. During the 1870s it was restored by renowned Victorian architect, William Butterfield, before being abandoned in 1961. Highlights include 14th century Gothic niches with traces of red paint, hatches in the nave floor revealing recycled medieval roof timbers, the Downing cartouche of 1673 over the south door, Victorian 'tortoise' stove, and rescued fragments of 19th century stained glass in the new chancel windows. The church is also currently home to cave spiders, bats and great crested newts.
