St Mary Magdalene

A Short History (page 2 of 3)

The legend of St. Christopher was a particular subject of devotion during the medieval period when it was popularly believed that whoever saw an image of the Saint would not die a violent death that day (One way of encouraging church attendance!)

The plain Norman arch is an original feature and in the 13th century the Early English window was inserted in the north wall The font has a plain six-sided bowl and is probably early 16th century resting on the original Norman cylindrical font.

The Reredos behind the altar originally formed part of the Perpendicular rood screen with a loft, the access doors to which can still be seen by the pulpit.
