Welcome to St Marys.

 The present church was built in the 13th century in the gothic style. The tower houses a peal of six bells which are regularly rung for services. Notably, the vestry houses a full immersion baptistry which was installed by the Victorians. This can be viewed on request, but is open during Open Churches week.
Please contact for more information our Churchwarden:
Nigel Crowley (01473 890546) 
The Church is surrounded by rolling countryside and an extensive network of rural footpaths. We are open everyday for your quiet prayers and meditation.
