TQ3250 : St Mary the Virgin, Bletchingley

taken 12 years ago, near to Bletchingley, Surrey, Great Britain

St Mary the Virgin, Bletchingley
St Mary the Virgin, Bletchingley
The tower dates back to circa 1090, with the porch and oak door dating to 1460. The tower originally had a spire, but this was destroyed when it was struck by lightning in 1606. The nave is comparatively modern, being built in 1856.

Just beneath the window covered with glass is a smaller round hole (partially covered by a gravestone in this picture). This was possibly used by Roger the Hermit, who is said to have visited these parts in the 13th-century.
