St Mary's church in Carlton-le-Moorland is largely a late sixteenth-century building and thus a rarity. The chancel, though, is from the Decorated period.

In this view from the south-west it is clear that the church has many of typical Perpendicular architectural features - buttresses, battlements, pinnacles - but in stark contract it also has domestic-looking mullioned windows of the sixteenth century.

Another view of St Mary's from the south-east emphasising the contrast in architectural style between the chancel and nave.

The church was restored by C H Fowler in 1890-91.

The font dates from around 1200, much the earliest survival of the medieval church on this site.

It is circular on a square base with shafts at each corner. The faces of the bowl are lightly carved with a decorative frieze.

The base has been recently restored.
