16.5.66 Church of St Mary
1849-53, possibly by T H Wyatt, replacing a medieval building. Decorated style;
chancel with an opening on the north side onto a 'vestry', aisleless nave, south
porch, and west tower. Blue tile roofing with lozenge bands. Walling of squared
knapped flint with stone dressings; hood-moulds, moulded plinth, diagonal stepped
buttresses. Single and double windows, the latter with reticulate tracery; 3-light
east window. The outside (blocked) north door, the south door, and the nave side of
the tower arch have decorative voussoirs, being the original Norman arches of the old
church (the tower arch once the chancel arch): the tower has a stone parapet with
cusped panelling, and the tops of the diagonal buttresses have slender detached
pinnacles. Within, the church is lined with Bathstone ashlar, and the pulpit was set
within an opening with an arched head within a gable. The nave has a scissors roof a
the chancel roof is panelled. The church is now adapted as a private musical studio.
