The church, dedicated to St Decumanus or Dagmur, is an ancient cruciform edifice with a square tower, and was restored in 1869. The remains of an ancient cross are in the churchyard. There were formerly three great houses in the parish-one at Eastinghorn, where are some Norman remains; one at Hentland, where was probably a religious house; and one at Kilpaison, where there may have been a cell in connection with some monastery or priory. Each of these houses had a mortuary chapel in the church, now forming the S chancel, N transept, and vestry.
