ST MARYS CHURCH

DESCRIPTION + /

The earliest part of this church dates before 1020, remains of a string course suggesting a date of 8th or early 9th century. There are also remains of the original Anglo-Saxon nave and parts of its windows. Early in the 11th century the church was extended and a tower built, parts of which can still be seen, and there were additions in the 12th, 13th and 15th centuries. A sundial is built into the east wall of the nave and 3 fragments of Anglian sculptured stones were built into the church, one in the foot of a pier on the south side of the nave, the other two above the north door. The 3 stones now appear to be missing but there is half of a cross-head with a ring attached standing at the west end of the south aisle. A college of secular priests, founded 1408, obtained the church in 1412 and was dissolved in 1548. A hospital or almshouse was attached to the college, (see NY12SW7).
