Pyrton: The Church of St Mary
Some parts of the church date from the early 12th century, but it was substantially rebuilt in 1856 to the designs of J C Buckler. The bellcote with its three exposed bells is a prominent feature. It is a Grade II* Listed Building. Two of the chest tombs in the graveyard, both dating from the late 18th century, are also Grade II Listed. One of these is probably the ivy-covered tomb by the tree to the right, while the other is on the south side of the church to the left.
