Geocache Description:

A Geocache has been placed here in the past but unfortunately it was archived. I decided that Halesworth needs another Church Micro. St Mary is one of the Blyth Valley group of churches located in Halesworth. You are looking for a camourflage Bison so please BYOP. Watch out for Muggles especially on Market day, which is held on Wednesday as it can get extremely busy.

Congratulations on FTF.....elsley22 There has probably been a church on the site of St Mary's, since Saxon times. Halesworth is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 recording Ulf the priest to be in charge of the parish. The present church is essentially early 15th century with outer aisles built and restoration taking place in the late 19th century. At the time of the restoration, some evidence was uncovered of a round-tower church on the site. The carved Danestones in the church are now believed to be early Norman in date. They were found in the church during the 19th century and could be part of a cross shaft. They depict hands clutching foliage or tails. Their original location is unknown, but undoubtedly pre-date anything now visible in the present church. St Mary's is part of the Blyth Valley Team Ministry of eleven parishes. A statue of the Madonna and Child in the Lady Chapel was fashioned from driftwood by Peter Eugene Ball. Tall railings once surrounded the churchyard. This provided protection from sheep and cattle being driven through on market day. This was known as Monkey Walk.
