Search St Mary Churchyard:

The Parish Church of St Mary is situated in the centre of the village, just off the B4367 road, on a low mound. The relatively large churchyard, still in use, surrounds the church on all sides. The stone building, thought to have been first built about 1140 has a tower to the west with a wooden spire housing a clock and three bells. Like many other churches in the area, St Mary's was heavily restored in the 1860s and 1870s, though some Saxon features, including the font, remain.
The unusual Weeping Pear next to the porch is locally known as 'The Devil's Pear Tree'.
