Church of St Mary
TL 43 M 10/747 21.2.67
Flint rubble building with a very small nave of Saxon origin (early C11).
It was re-roofed in the C15 when the west tower was built and most of the
chancel. The church was restored in the C19 when the north vestry and south
porch were added. The west tower is unbuttressed, with a plain parapet
and stone bands. The nave which measures 26 ft x 15 ft has Saxon long and
short work at the west angle. The C11 chancel arch has a roughly moulded
label and decorated imposts. The south doorway is also of the C11 but altered
in the C15. There is a small original window above the tower arch. The
nave contains about 12 small pews of which 2 at the west end are C15. In
the chancel north wall there is a recessed altar tomb with canopy to John
Gardyner, Lord of the Manor 1508 and 2 palimpsest brasses of the C15 and
C16. One to a priest. The font is of the late C12. Graded for its architectural
and historical value. (RCHM 1).
