St. Mary’s stands on an eminance overlooking the Lodon valley and is approached via a drive through farm buildings. Adjacent to the churchyard are what are thought to be former medieval carp ponds. The building now comprises a tower, nave and south aisle and chancel all dating to about the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. There are some good monuments including a thirteenth century stone effigy of a knight and nearby the stone effigies of a Renaissance man and his wife with the figures of ten kneeling children around the tomb. Edward Elgar is known to have stopped off at Much Cowarne on his many cycling trips, a fact marked by a plaque inside the church.
