Information: St. Mary's is a Norman foundation, (the church is listed in a taxatio of Pope Nicholas I in 1291). The tower dates from the 14th century. The present nave, south aisle and chancel were built in 1875. The south porch has a room above it, to which access is provided by a round tower capped with a conical roof. Stained glass in the east wall is by Kempe, 1877 and in the west wall by Heaton, Butler and Bayne, 1945. In the porch is the effigy of John Lloyd, "squire to the body" of Elizabeth I.
