SU 73 NE
2/1 Church of St Mary

Parish church. C13, with substantial restoration of 1865, by David Brandon.
Stone walls and tile roof. An Early English design, said to be much rebuilt,
presumably to the original design; nave, chancel (former apse removed), and
Victorian small vestry and south porch. The nave has 5 lancets with 4
buttresses, the west gable 3 separated lancets, the short chancel has a higher
lancet at each side and a 3 light east window set within an arch (to former
apse). The north and south doors of the nave, and smaller priest's door,
have deeply moulded arches above recessed orders of shafts (the north now
filled). Victorian gabled porch, and gabled vestry. Plain roof of a single
ridge, with a western bell turret, with a shingled spire above a timber frame.
The walls have mostly polygonal walling, with ashlar dressings. Interior:
deep window reveals with roll mouldings, and recessed shafts to the chancel.
There are several wall monuments of the C17 and C18, and a medieval tomb recess
in the south wall of the nave, containing a female effigy (to Philippa Chaucer).
Victorian font.
