The 14th Regiment of Foot (West Yorkshire Regiment) was formed in 1685, one of nine new foot regiments raised to counter the Monmouth Rebellion. In 1782 they were renamed the Bedfordshire Regiment, but in 1802 retitled to the Buckinghamshire Regiment. In 1876 they became The Prince of Wales' Own. Under the reforms of 1880 they became the Prince of Wales' Own Yorkshire Regiment. In 2006 they became part of the new Yorkshire Regiment with the Duke of Wellington's Regiment and The Green Howards.
The church is principally 13th and 14th Century, but a church was sited here, or near here at the time of the Norman Conquest. The tower dates from the 15th Century. It is an extremely grandiose church, especially for the small size of the parish, and has been dubbed a "mini cathedral". It is very well endowed with effigies and other ecclesiastical items.
