The internationally renowned cruciform Anglo-Saxon minster church of St Mary dates to 975AD with a Norman chancel completed around 1150AD. The Victorian restoration was sensitive to the original construction. Important features include Viking graffiti from 10th-11th century, a 12th century wall painting depicting the life and death in 1170AD of Thomas Becket,  Archbishop of Canterbury, and a font from 1300AD. Enjoy the peace and quiet, reflect on the skills of our forebears.

A 13th century font with no overtly Christian symbols (our Pagan mystery). Many 15th century pews with Victorian copies.
