Walpole St Mary’s church
Walpole St Mary’s church
There has been a church here since the earliest days of Christianity. It is fitting that just up the road from the church is the oldest chapel in the county. converted in 1647, in the middle of the Civil War, from a 40-years-old meeting-house. The parish church dates from the 14th century but Saxon workmanship can still be seen today in the glacial erratics used as quoin stones in the walls of nave and chancel alike. The tower and spire are modern. The porch is 14th century and has a scratch dial. The Norman doorway is rich in zigzag chevron decoration and inside there is a Norman stoup with broken bowl, now just a niche. The sedilia and piscina with cusped pediment are both 14th century. The holy table is Jacobean. High on the wall of the nave are the gilded plaster Hanoverian Royal Arms.
