The Parish Church of St. Mary Magdalene
The church (St. Mary) was partly rebuilt in 1880, but some Transitional Norman. work is preserved in the porch, an the eastern part of the north aisle is a fine Early English chapel, in the windows of which there is some 13th century glass. A remarkable 14th century screen was most scandalously permitted to be taken down as late as the year 1917. Small portions of it, consisting of some tracery in a new frame, have since been restored to the nave. A chasuble is preserved in the south aisle, of brown satin , embroidered in gold and silver, with a representation of the Crucifixion, dating from the end of the 15th century.
