St Mary's Kelvedon

St Mary's Parish Church is the oldest and most historic building in the village. Parts of it are over 800 years old.


A special feature is the magnificent roof made of English oak with tiebeams and moulded braces with traceried spandrels, dating from about 1400 together with four pairs of half figures you can see looking down on you. These figures represent the Apostles and they are holding articles which relate to the Guilds to which the church was connected.


Other interesting features include the "squint holes" in the chancel arch. These were made before the days of church pews, so that the elderly sitting on benches around the walls could see what was going on at the high altar. this reminds us that a church is first and foremost about people and about meeting their spiritual needs.
