Geocache Description:


•The church of St Mary consists of a chancel with vestry and organ chamber on the north, nave, north aisle, south aisle, west tower and south porch. The walls are of rubble with stone dressings, and the roofs are covered with stone slates and lead.
•The church is not mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086, and the earliest parts of the present church are the 13th century nave arcades, of which that on the north is the slightly earlier. Practically all the rest of the church was rebuilt in the 15th century, but the south porch and the vestry are probably a little later, circa 1500. The chancel and the vestry are said to have been rebuilt in 1808, when the vestry (originally a chapel) was reduced in length.
•The church was much restored in 1857 when the gallery was removed from the west end, and the chancel and south porch restored. The clearstory and the nave roof probably also belong to this restoration. Some repairs were undertaken in 1887-88 when the chancel arch and the east wall of the south aisle were rebuilt. In 1908-9, the south aisle was partially rebuilt again.

“If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.
There is also a Church Micro Stats page found via the Bookmark list”
