  St. Mary's Church
by steventilly

The church was originally built around 1150 and was gradually extended over the following centuries. In the 16040's, during the Civil War, the church was used as an offensive position by the Parliamentarians and was partially destroyed by return fire from the Royalists in the castle. The ruins in the foreground are the result of this - they used to be choir and north trancept.
