St Mary's Church

At the top of the hill stands the parish church of St Mary, flanked with twin towers, and consecrated in 1260 on land that belonged to Rouen Cathedral from 1061-1336. A large part of the liturgical furniture dates back to that period (1280-1377), including the Grandisson clock and the gilded wooden eagle, one of the oldest and finest lecterns of this sort in England. Note the different vaults, the superb keystones and corbels.
