The church of St Mary in Marlingford
The church of St Mary in Marlingford
A church - surrounded by houses until the villagers moved their dwellings onto Marlingford Common during the following centuries - stood on the site even before the Norman Conquest, the Norman south doorway > LinkExternal link and the baptismal font being the only survivors from the 12th century. Nothing remains of the original church, and St Mary's > LinkExternal link as we see it today, has been extended and altered in the following centuries. The tower was added in the 13th century and a north aisle constructed during the 14th. During the Reformation the church lost its medieval wall paintings and the chancel > LinkExternal link was extensively rebuilt. In the 1880s the north aisle was rebuilt, the nave > LinkExternal link received a new roof and new seating and windows were installed. The stained glass > LinkExternal link is by Powell & Son.
