Administrative / Biographical History

The sketch is of the earlier church dedicated to the Virgin Mary on this site. In 1853 the old church was rebuilt using stone rubble at a cost of £950. Several of the fittings in the old church were replaced but the original baptismal font was retained and installed in the new church. In 1998, St Mary's Church was granted Grade II-listed status, as a good example of a small Gothic Revival Church, characterized by its use of clearly articulated architectural forms and a controlled, coherent vocabulary of detail.
