The Bardsey Millennium Tapestry, created by many people from the village, is hung at the west end of the north wall of the church. The tapestry took nearly five years to complete and was officially unveiled in October 2001.

History

The church was built in the 9th century; its tower is the oldest surviving part from between 850 and 950 AD. The latest restoration was carried out by Charles R. Chorley and Son of Leeds in 1909.

Architectural style

The church has an Anglo-Saxon west tower and the aisles are from the Norman era. The aisles were widened in the 14th century. The north chapel of 1520 is now the vestry and the south chapel of 1724, which was built for the Bayley family, is the choir vestry. The church is built of red sandstone with a coursed rubble tower and harrier-dressed gritstone to the chancel and south transept. The porch is ashlar and the roof of stone slate.

The church has a lychgate to Church Lane.
