Simply furnished and gloriously fit

St Mary's stands at the end of a small lime-tree avenue, above the road and at the east end of the long village. The bold, buttressed flint-and-stone medieval church is set in a grassy churchyard. It is simply furnished and gloriously lit, with several lovely memorials to local people.

The powerful tower is Perpendicular, but the rest is fourteenth century and earlier. The round clerestory windows with quatrefoil tracery are unusual, and the figures on the Greene monument gaze towards their house long demolished.
