St Mary

St Mary is a fine example of a church overseeing a traditional rural Wold village, the village has high hills around it and a sparkling stream beginning its journey which ends with the marsh and sea.

About this church

St Mary's is solidly built of yellow sandstone and was extensively rebuilt by James Fowler around 1879. It retains a late Norman doorway and a Norman arch at the west end of the building that was once part of a tower that was taken down prior to 1879 for safety reasons. The nave, chancel & font are dated as 14th century work. A little older are four floors tones, three enriched with floriated crosses.
