St Mary the Virgin is a grade I listed building, dating back to the 11th century. The church can seat over 300 in the pews, possibly 400 with chairs in open spaces.
A sound reinforcement system has been installed. The peal of 8 bells is heavy. The tenor bell was cast for the 1951 Festival of Britain. There is an active Tower organisation, and sufficient ringers can be brought in to cover Sunday mornings and most other occasions when a peal is appropriate.
In 1993 a sympathetic extension was added to the north side of the church, giving two good-sized rooms, plus a vestibule capable of separate use. The extension incorporates a small kitchen and toilet facilities.
The original churchyard is no longer used for burials but there is an extension to the churchyard on the other side of Church Street.
A church has stood on this site for over 850 years – that's not long after the Conquest by Duke William of Normandy. Since then – both before and after the Reformation continuous worship has been offered to the Glory of God.
If you need peace, silence, time to think, our church is open everyday during daylight hours.
