The 13th Century Church building is Grade 1 listed. The earliest parts date from the 11th Century but the Chancel is attributed to Petrus de Cestria who was Rector from 1235 to 1295. The Roll of Deans and Rectors of Whalley goes back to 1122AD; it is also interesting to note that between 1348 and 1537 monks from the Abbey were incumbents here.

The Nave is from the later 13th century and the tower was added in the 15th Century.
