St Thomas à Becket, Capel
The church originated in the Norman era. The chancel arch dates from the 13th century, and the tower and the nave from the 14th or early 15th century. Alterations were made in the 16th century. There was a fire in the tower in 1639, and it had to be partly rebuilt. The chancel and the south wall were refurbished during the 19th century. The church was vested in the Churches Conservation Trust on 8 July 1986. The communion rails are dated 1662. The walls of the interior of the church are lime-washed, and the floors are tiled. On the north wall of the nave are wall paintings probably dating from the 13th century. They depict biblical scenes, including Cain and Abel and Christ's entry into Jerusalem. They were discovered in 1967 and restored by Mrs Eve Baker. Towards the west end of this wall is a niche. The chancel contains a 20th-century stone altar. The oak pulpit dates from the 19th century.
It is said that Thomas Becket preached either in the church, or under a yew tree in the churchyard.
