St Mary's Church
The parish church of St Mary the Virgin has been in existence for a very long time with a list of Rectors dating back to 1265. Built of blue lias stone, consisting of a chancel, north vestry, nave, western tower and a porch to the south.
The vestry, in memory of William Greswell (1765 – 1876) is on the site of an earlier building formerly linked to the chancel by an arcade. This suggests the chancel was longer to provide a choir for the Chantry Priests.
Five Chaplains were to celebrate, daily for the souls of the Lord of the Manor, Sir Simon de Furneaux and his heirs. This was set up in 1329. The ruined building now known as the Chantry was part of the original Manor House.
