The present church was built in 1848 by the Hon. John Chetwynd Talbot, 3rd son of Charles Chetwynd, 2nd Earl Talbot of Ingestre, as an act of piety and to be his mausoleum, and was consecrated on Whit-Tuesday 1849. The architects were T.H.Wyatt and David Brandon of London, and “the Church has a little altered Victorian Interior in the Early English style.” It is built of local keuper sandstone with a roof of Staffordshire blue tiles.
