SK 2028 4/1 --------------
Church of St Mary

Parish Church. C13 fabric and the most important in the county, with chancel and
apsidal sanctuary replaced in 1866 by G E Street. South tower probably added C16.
North aisle an addition of 1820-2 by Joseph B H Bennett. Stone with slate roof.
Notable west front of circa 1160-70 which has a fine doorway of 7 orders, the
outermost order being of alabaster, the earliest known use of the material in
England. The south aisle retains a Norman doorway having much-weathered tympanum
carving depicting a boar hunt. The interior contains little of interest.
