The Churches of Britain and Ireland
Baptist Church. SK 287 540. © James Murray.
Our Lady and St. Theresa (R.C.). SK 289 531. © Bruce Read.
St. Mary the Virgin, a splendid church. SK 2874 5394. © James Murray. Another view, © Bruce Read. Two views of the interior - 1, 2, East window, the pulpit and the font. The church is notable for its Saxon survivals, most importantly this richly carved coffin lid, dated to the 7th century. There are many fragments of carved stonework incorporated into the present building, presumably recycled from the predecessor church (see here for more details) , some interesting monuments too.
