St Mary's church in Cranwich, taken 7 years ago
St Mary's church stands on a slight elevation on the site of a much older place of worship. The round tower is believed to be almost totally Saxon, its base dating from perhaps as early as 700AD. High up on the south side of the tower there is a small round window > LinkExternal link with a knot design. The nave may be contemporary with the tower, the south door > LinkExternal link with dog-tooth ornament and chamfer dates from about 1200 AD and the chancel dates almost entirely from about 1300. The south porch > LinkExternal link was added during the 14th century.
