St Margaret's church
St Margaret's church is set back from The Common and hidden from view by surrounding houses. It can be reached via Port Row, a path that leads past a row of cottages straight to the churchyard gate > Link. The church > Link - Link - Link was built in the 13th century; its porch is C15 and has a 17th century brick gable and the main door is still the original one, dating from the 15th century. The chancel was rebuilt in 1912 without altering its foundations; it is noticeably unaligned with the adjoining nave and it is believed that the church once used to have a north aisle and north arcading. The ringing gallery was added in 1991. A C13 Purbeck marble font survives > Link and a glass case on the chancel south wall contains the Lyng Pall, an altar cloth which was made from C15 vestments: two copes and chasuble in red, blue and amber velvet with intricate embroidery, depicting apostles, saints and angels standing on their wheels > Link - Link. A large figure depicting St Margaret, with a dragon at her feet, was created by Farrar Bell in 1968 and set in the centre light of the east window > Link - this is the only stained glass now in the church. The church is open every day. See also: LinkExternal link
