By 1400, in the aftermath of the Black Death, the population of the villages of Angram, Hutton Wandesley and Long Marston had crashed.

In that year they successfully petitioned the Archbishop to move the remains of their original church from Chapel Hill, Angram, to the boundary of Long Marston. Using building stones and gravestones from that original church they turned their chapel of ease into the Grade 1 listed church which now stands on the boundary between Long Marston and Hutton Wandesley. Many of the church’s 12th-century features can now be seen in the 15th-century building, as well as some features that are even older – one of the church’s two fonts is believed to be a piece of Roman stonework.
