St Mary's church > LinkExternal link is situated a short distance to the north of the small village of Huntingfield. It was built from local flint and stones imported from Northamptonshire. The nave north wall dates from the 12th century and the chancel walls date from a century later. The porch was the last addition to the church and is from the 15th century. The church was extensively restored in Victorian times and most furnishings were installed by the rector William Holland who arrived in the mid 1800s. It was his wife Mildred who painted the chancel and nave roofs > LinkExternal link from end to end in brilliant colours, with carved and coloured angels, banners, crowns and shields. When the chancel roof was painted the church was closed for eight months until the work was done. The rector and his wife are buried in the churchyard, their grave being marked by an elaborately carved cross > LinkExternal link. The 15th century East Anglian-style font > LinkExternal link has a bowl carved with shields and roses and four seated lions around its stem. The elaborately carved font cover > LinkExternal link is a Victorian addition. The east window of the south aisle contains fragments of medieval and rare border glass > LinkExternal link depicting rabbits, scallop shells and a dog.
