The PARISH CHURCH of St. Mary. The walls are of local rubble with dressings of the same material;

the roofs are covered with lead and stone slates. The Nave is of uncertain date, the earliest existing features

being the 14th. Century windows in the North wall. The Trancepts, Central Tower and North Porch were

built late in the 14th or early in the 15th Century. The Chancel was rebuilt early in the 16th Century, but the

South Wall has been rebuilt or refaced at a later date. The Church was extensively restored in 1897 when the

South Arcade and South Aisle were built.
