It is situated at the north end of the village and is one of 42 in Suffolk with a round tower, one of the tallest in Suffolk. It also has a double roof, reputed to have been used by smugglers who brought their booty up the River Blyth. The Norman tower dates from the early 1100s but parts of the church may be older.

Inside the church there is a plaque showing those from the village who served in the World Wars, alongside another in memory of the American servicemen killed whilst serving at Holton Airfield. In the churchyard too, there is a war memorial showing the names of the servicemen from Holton killed in both World Wars.
HELP CARE FOR YOUR CHURCHYARD
The church council treats the churchyard maintenance as a village project. Supervised work parties are organised using a management plan drawn up the Suffolk Wildlife Trust.
