St Mary's Church, B1127 Church Road, Henstead
St Mary's Church, B1127 Church Road, Henstead
Grade I Listed medieval thatched church restored 1842-43 and substantially restored in 1906. A church has probably stood on this site for at least 900 years but the church “writings” were destroyed in a fire. The north wall may have been built soon after 1066. The two doorways, north and south, are in 12th century late Norman style. The porch and tower were built in 1470. In 1641 a fire spread from a farmhouse near the east end of the church and is thought to have burnt the old carved benches, much of the interior woodwork and much of the chancel. The porch was renovated in 2010.
