St. Mary's Hemington Church is typical of many English country churches. It was built by the Normans, extended and altered around 1230; there was further work 100 years later, and again 1480-1500 when the tower was built. The porch is Victorian and (he pews date from the early 1600's. Certain parts of the building are of substantial architectural interest. The parish includes the medieval manors of Hemington, Highchurch, Huntminster and Faulkland, all of which probably had village settlements but today (lie principle centre of population is Faulkland. Though there is no other evidence, the names Highchurch and
Huntminster suggest that originally there were churches at these places. Unrest
following (he Norman Conquest and the severity of (lie Black Death in the area in
1348 permanently affected the pattern of settlement.
