- What's nearby
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 thirteenth and fourteenth-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 nineteenth century, when the tower was rebuilt.
There is a working watermill nearby, accessible through a farmyard.
A 12th century church made of “handsome stone” in a tiny parish.
A medieval treasure saved by George Gilbert Scott
