The church closed in 2006 because of structural problems but the local villagers raised over £250,000 to repair the church. It reopened during 2013 and has been the recipient of a English Heritage Angel award to mark the achievement of saving the historic building.


The minor-key ring of three has been augmented to six by adding two newly cast treble bells and a tenor bell ex-Gorran, Cornwall. The work was completed during January 2016.
