The west end of the nave survives from the original 12th century church, and the east nave and aisles were built in the 15th century. The north-east tower was added in 1716 by William Paul[disambiguation needed ], and completed by George Townesend. The lantern was rebuilt by Luke Henwood in 1807, and the chancel rebuilt in the mid 19th century.

The church is surrounded on three sides by pedestrian passageways and built into surrounding buildings. Over the south nave is a priests room and over the north a Georgian coffee room. The most notable monument is to Edward Colston designed by James Gibbs and carved by John Michael Rysbrack.[1]
