St Mary’s is a large impressive building with clerestory, transepts, crossing-tower and spire.

There has been much rebuilding, especially in the 18th and 19th centuries, but the five-bay arcades and the chancel arch date from c1200.

The fine windows show every Gothic style of tracery.  Pevsner describes the large west window, as ‘uncommonly wilful’.
