St Mary’s, Roxby, has a tower dating to the late Anglo-Saxon or early Norman periods.

Much of the rest of the building is the work of the ubiquitous James Fowler in 1875, though he left many medieval features inside.

The fine, plain tower, probably of Saxon origin.

It is noteworthy that the tower is unbuttressed whilst most other parts of the building (Fowler's work) are heavily buttressed.

This small window on the south side of the tower suggests Anglo-Saxon origin.

The clock is in memory of the 10 villagers who died in the First World War and the one who perished in WW2.
