The Tower is the most prominent feature of the church and village. It dates from c970 and is all that remains of the Saxon turriform church – a tower church with a small high roofed extension to the east.
Later in the 12th century a nave and chancel were added in its Norman period. The tower is a Grade 1 listed ancient monument.
“Every century from the tenth onwards is represented in the fabric and fittings of the building which bears witness to the continuity of Christian life in Earls Barton and is still a very active place of worship.”
Andrew Hart, Earls Barton, 1997
