The church seats about 30 people, and the chancel is 13.5 feet (4.1 m) x 10 feet (3.0 m), the nave 21.5 feet (6.6 m) x 12.33 feet (3.8 m) and the building has a total length of 35 feet (10.7 m). It is dedicated to Columba the Virgin. Services are still held there, despite the lack of road access. The church is probably pre-Norman in origin, with a 13th century porch, and late 15th century nave. It was refenestrated and reroofed around 1810 and the spirelet added in 1888. It underwent further restoration in 1928.
