ST MARYS CHURCH

DESCRIPTION + /

This church was probably built on a cruciform plan in the 11th century with chancel and transepts projecting from a crossing or nave, wider than themselves. Parts of the east wall of the present nave and the responds at the east end of the arcades survive from this period. The present north and south arcades and part of the south aisle date from the late 12th century, and the chancel arch was inserted at the same period. Extensions and reconstructions were carried out on the church during the 15th to 17th centuries including the building of the west tower in the 16th century. Further rebuilding and general restorations were undertaken during the 19th century. There is strong evidence that Charminster was a late Saxon minster. Listed.
