About

An unspoilt Medieval atmosphere

St Mary’s is set on a hillside, below the Chiltern escarpment but above the new village stretching along the valley floor. The building dates from the 13th- and 15th-centuries.

It has a tall tower, a long nave and a chancel with beautifully carved capitals. Its interior includes handsome carving on the Norman font from an earlier church, numerous Medieval tiles, fine 16th- and 17th-century woodwork and 18th-century wallpaintings of a Royal Arms, Ten commandments and Lords Prayer above the chancel arch.

The gentle 19th-century restoration has left an unspoiled Medieval atmosphere.
