A shared churchyard

Unusually, the square-towered St Mary’s shares a churchyard with another church, St Adelwold's.

The bulk of St Mary’s dates from the 13th-and 14th-centuries, although a blocked-up window in the chancel could date from before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

It also has box pews and improving texts from the early 19th century, when the tower was rebuilt.

There is a working watermill nearby, accessible through a farmyard.

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.
