St Mary the Virgin, Plumtree
St Mary the Virgin, Plumtree
Founded in the 9th century the church at "Pluntre" is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Later a Saxon church was built, largely of triassic sandstone, some of which still remains. Norman work was added, and in the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries the building achieved its present form in the Early English and Perpendicular styles, mainly in Lincolnshire limestone. The church occupies a prominent position at the top of Church Hill with an open vista to the south across the churchyard. The church was restored and decorated in the 1870s by the Victorian architects Bodley and Garner to include gilded and painted woodwork and chancel ceiling. The tower holds a peal of six bells moved to Plumtree from nearby Clifton, Nottingham, in 1991.
