Dowde (or Dode) Church
Dowde (or Dode) Church
This norman church was originally twinned with the church in Paddlesworth (TQ6862) and served the village of Dode. Today, the church is left virtually isolated down a no-through road, with only a few local farms to keep it company. The village of Dowde no longer exists as it was wiped out by the Black Death in the 14th century. It was deconsecrated in 1387 but unlike its sister in Paddlesworth (TQ6862 : St Benedict's Church), was never reconsecrated. Today, the building is privately owned and is used for various functions and is often used for pagan gatherings such as solstices.
