The Church of St Mary the Virgin

Finished in 1878, the church replaced an old one (probably 13th century) which was in danger of collapse due to subsidence.  Many items from the old church were incorporated into the present one, including windows, bells, pulpit, font, etc.  See Links page for floor plan of the current church.
