St Mary’s is listed at Grade II and is of high architectural and historic significance. While no standing fabric from the late C12 church survives there is evidence of a former late C13 priest’s chamber and substantial survival of late C14/early C15 fabric, including the tower and part of the south aisle. Both church and churchyard have significant archaeological value.
The church contains a number of important fixtures and fittings, including a C12 font and C14 piscina. Important C19 additions include the striking rose window at the west end. The church is surrounded by a large churchyard that contains two C15 churchyard crosses (one of which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument) and an impressive collection of monuments, including a large number that are listed at Grade II. The listed churchyard boundary wall and gate are important elements of the streetscape.
