Charles Fretwell lost his life at Oxspring Station when he jumped onto a moving train on his way to a wedding.
Although most of the present building was built in the 1300s, there are foundations of an earlier church from the 10th century. There are large numbers of horizontal gravestones from the Victorian era in the churchyard that remain very readable.
