St Mary's Church dates back to 1193 and was restored in 1885 but respected it's ancient fabric.
The churchyard was closed along with the one at neighbouring Yarwell in the late 1880’s; or more specifically were served with closure by Order in Council in the years 1881 and 1882 respectively.
Some of the headstones can be deciphered while others are covered in lichens perhaps because they are sheltered by a large tree or located near the Millennium Yews/Shrubs. The headstones on the other side of the church are much harder to decipher as they have clearly spent a long time in the open.
Since the churchyard’s closure most burials take place at the Nassington and Yarwell Cemetery although there are some small plaques on the ground close to the church building dating from the last 20 years or so. These would most probably be interment of cremated remains.
