The church, built of local sandstone, dates from the fifteenth century. But, there was a church on the site in 1261, and Flitton is mentioned in the Domesday Book, spelt Flictham. Added to this structure is the oddly white stucco chancel, built as a mausoleum for the de Grey family, Earls of Kent. The de Grey's lived at nearby Wrest Park, and the mausoleum contains memorials dating to the early seventeenth century.
the De Grey Mausoleum is open to the public.
