The parish church

St. Mary's church
St. Mary's church

The church, standing on a hillside overlooking the village, is of late Saxon or early Norman origin.[3] Built around 1050, the church was restored around 1850. The Trinity Episcopal Church of Stoughton Massachusetts, USA received a stone from the ribbing in the old church's chancel area as a gift in 1935, presented to then Rector Marshall. It was placed in the floor of the pulpit.[citation needed] The restoration of some of its outer walls was at the behest of Elizabeth Killick, a naval engineer who was the first woman to become a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.[4]

Landmarks

Kingley Vale lies on the border of the parish which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a national nature reserve. It is noted for its Yew woodlands.[5] The site is also known for its archaeological interest including the Bronze Age barrow cemetery known as the Devil's Humps, Bronze Age and Roman earthworks, cross dykes, a camp and a field system.
