There is evidence to suggest that a church has been on the site of St Andrew since the seventh century and parts of the present structure do indeed date from the Saxon and the Norman era. The first recorded Rector was Thomas A Becket who was martyred in 1170.

The church underwent extensive modernisation in 1840 when todays western tower was built. The tower is apparently built over an ancient well, which is locally said to have been a holy well; it is now covered over, but still used as a drain for the font.
