About this church

St Mary’s is a beautiful little church with a spiritual and peaceful atmosphere and its services are in the main quiet and prayerful and for many it is a very special haven.

The church, parts of which are of late Saxon period, is first recorded in the Doomsday book of 1086. Although not having a huge congregation, St Mary's is much loved and many people give freely of their time to support St Mary's in a variety of ways.

It may be helping to look after our Living Churchyard, lovingly cleaning the church, organising music concerts or just visiting and taking in the beauty of church in between our usual church services. It is also home to Reed Choir.

Many ramblers, cyclists and dog walkers also use St Mary's as a start, end or place to rest on their routes. St Mary's is open daily and there is Morning Prayer on Thursday mornings at 9am.
