St Mary's Church, Dodleston
St Mary's Church, Dodleston
The Bell Tower and clock at St Mary's has recently been restored. It is the oldest surviving structure in Dodleston and the lower part of the tower is definitely of pre-Reformation date and still contains a bell bearing the inscription "Ave Marie".

The clock has told the villagers the time since 1870.

It is in the base of the tower that the Lord Chancellor of England to Queen Elizabeth I and James I is buried. He was Sir Thomas Egerton (d.1616) and with him are two other graves, those of his first wife Elizabeth (d.1588) and his son Thomas, who died in Dublin in 1599 at the age of 25 and was brought back to Dodleston for burial. The Tower houses a peal of 6 bells which are rung every Sunday morning.
