Our medieval building is noted for its fourteenth century stone rood-screen, its memorials to the Tudor jurist Willam Bendlowes, its nineteenth-century restoration by G.F. Bodley and the twenty-first century etched glass doors to the Tower by Richard Bawden in memory of Edward and Charlotte Bawden, two of the "Bardfield Artists". Most of the stained glass windows and much of the fabric date from the time of the Rev. Lionel Lampet, vicar of Great Bardfield from 1867 to 1921.
