St Mary's church - view east
The rood screen is dedicated to Lt Leonard Harrison (Lancashire Fusiliers, Ypres 1915) and Sub Lt (RN) Gerard Harrison (Scapa Flow 1917).

A church is known to have stood here for over 900 years. St Mary's > Link as we see it today, was built mainly in the 14th century but part of the north wall is believed to date from Norman times. A small rounded window on the chancel north wall is presumably older and from Saxon times. The south wall of the aisle has a Tudor doorway which gives access to a former chapel that now serves as the vestry. The church contains a number of memorial tablets to members of the Hotte family. St Mary's Link was extensively restored in the 19th century and the choir stalls were erected during this time - poppy heads from old benches were incorporated in some of them. The octagonal font > Link is from the 14th century and the C15 rood screen dado (the base), with its panels depicting a rare variety showing angels, rather than saints. The panels on the north side > Link were restored but the panels on the south side > Link are original. The east window contains fragments of medieval glass in one of the tracery lights. St Mary's is open every day.
