St Mary’s, nestled between the Hall and the Rectory .What you see there is the result of extensive rebuild in the 1850’s .Rev. Robert Cracroft with the help of Architect Mr Teulon redesigned the whole church in an earlier style. Retaining only the tower arch the font and many of the monuments which are of considerable historical value. This included a tomb beneath a mural arch at the east end of the nave with a stone figure of a Knight clad in chain mail with his legs crossed and his hands at prayer. This probably represents Sir John de Harrington from the reign of Edward 1 . In the Chancel area of the church there are many Monument and graves of the Coppledike and Amcotts Families . The main structure of the church is built of Somersby Sand Stone which came from just down the road. The restoration was completed by public subscription but the main cost was taken by Rev Robert Cracroft himself.
