History
The present church building, which replaced the original medieval church, was built in 1847-48 by Thomas Smith of Madeley. There is a two-bay chancel, vestry, nave, south porch (the entrance) and a ”bellcote•. There are steep roofs and substantial buttresses. There is a circular Norman font.

The box pews are unusual and there is a west gallery supported on iron columns, and these all date from 1848. The organ dates from 1762 and can still be played.

The theologian Richard Baxter (1615—1691) who was born in Rowton lived in Eaton Constantine in his boyhood. His childhood home, now called Baxter's House (a private residence), is a 16th-century timber-framed house in the centre of the village.
