A Message From Revd Charlene Smith 

St Mary’s Church, in the heart of the village, was first mentioned in the Domesday book. The Church that you see today is probably the third on the site and the bulk of the modern structure dates from around 1350 – 1400, although there are one or two pieces of the earlier church still visible today.

The Church is usually open on Thursdays and Saturdays thanks to volunteers who are keen to show you around. There is an informative guide available, for a donation, to help you to identify the various items of interest and share the history.


Simply to visit the church and absorb its history, beauty and peaceful atmosphere is a joy in itself, but with a little imagination the experience can be even more fulfilling.  Look out for some interesting old tombstones and ‘the Devil’s Door’.

Details of church services are located in the entrance porch.

Church Coffee Mornings

Regular coffee mornings take place at St Mary's Community Centre from 10am - 12pm every last Saturday of the month.​ There is an entrance fee of £2 which includes tea or coffee and biscuits. A few extra pennies will bag you some yummy home made cakes and there is also a white elephant stall and raffle.  

All money raised goes towards the upkeep of our beautiful but ancient Church.
