St Mary's Church, Wormsley

The present church contains Norman features dating from the 12th century, although it is thought that an earlier church may have existed on the site. Alterations were made to it in the 13th century and later.  The chancel arch dates from the 13th century and was probably rebuilt in the 19th century.  The pulpit is in oak and dates from the 17th century.  The font is from the 12th or 13th century and consists of a round bowl on a cylindrical base.  In the churchyard are a cross and four monuments that are all designated as Grade II listed buildings. Only the steps and base of the churchyard cross remain. They are in sandstone and date possibly from the 14th century. There is a sandstone pedestal tomb from the late 18th century to the memory of two Knight sisters.  The church was declared redundant on 1 March 1972, and was vested in the Churches Conservation Trust on 21 May 1974.    POST CODE: HR4 8LY
