A low budget church

Standing remote in rural surroundings and designed by J L Pearson in 1875, St Mary’s is a fine example of low budget inventiveness.

The church was erected at the expense of the Fowle family, whose mortal remains rest in the churchyard.

Built of flint, brick and tile with a tall pyramid spire, and with nave and aisles spanned by a single roof, it is a pattern of well-proportioned architecture.

There are pretty stained glass windows by Clayton and Bell.

    A very attractive building, when I visited, it was surrounded by snowdrops on a sunny February day. It felt like Spring was on the way. I met the key holder, a lovely lady from a nearby house.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as ‘Keyholder nearby’, this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
