Dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, this small,
charming eleventh century Norman church (Grade 1 listed) standing near
to the River Stour with a notable ornamented south door, fine Norman chancel
arch, and unique C15 font.
On the north wall there is a late 14th-century painting of a very lively
looking dragon, painted over an earlier scene. The very informative church
guidebook suggests that the dragon may refer to a passage in the Chronicle
of Henry de Blaneford of St Albans Abbey, written in 1405.
Being a later addition, he is quite out of scale with the other images
which were painted much earlier.
