1/16 Church of St.Mary
Parish church. Dated 1856 on south porch. Rebuilt in early English style by
Sir Arthur Blomfield for the Rev. E.R. Benyon, rector and lord of the manor.
The tower of the earlier church was heightened and encased in flint and Bath
stone to match the rest of the church. The north aisle was added in 1908.
Random kidney flint, with Bath stone quions and dressings and plaintiled roofs.
2-light windows to nave with cusped plate-tracery, and similar single-light
windows to chancel. A 3-light east window. The south porch has a steeply-
pitched plaintiled roof. The tower is of 4 stages: diagonal buttresses faced
with panels of black knapped flint, embattled parapet with flushwork panels,
heavy, ornate 2-light windows to top stage. A vestry to the north of the
chancel. The interior contains many monuments from the older church: to
members of the Bacon family, most important to Jane Bacon, 1654, a large
standing wall monument including her husband and children: to various
Cornwallises: and, in the north aisle, a large recumbent effigy of Countess
Cadogan (d.1907) in white marble in a vaulted recess with a cross, putti and
large vine-trails on the back wall. Below the church, vaults of the Cornwallis
and Cadogan families.
