CHURCH OF ST MARY

DESCRIPTION + /

Round towered church with a nave, chancel, north aisle, south porch and boilerhouse, the south porch belfry has been demolished. The building is of flint, freestone and brick, with slate roofs. The church is near an excavated Saxon hall site and may have originated as a Manorial chapel, though there is no survivng Saxon material. The nave is the earliest surviving part of the church, dating from the early 13th century, and the chancel dates from the 14th century. Work was carried out in the chancel in the 1460s. At some point between after the 15th century and before the 18th century the west tower collapsed and a wooden belfry was erected, over the south porch, in the 17th century. A new round tower was built in 1868 and the church was heavily restored.
