St Werburgh's Church

St Werburgh's Church

St Werburgh's is one of only 27 surviving timber-framed parish churches in England. An ancient and unpretentious church, its 1000 year history clearly reflected in its building and fitting. While the interior is entirely of timber, the exterior walls have been rebuilt at various times, stone in 1645, then some brick in 1711, when the tower and the little hearse house were added. The 12th century stone coffins in the church may have been for the priors of a nearby monastery. The church is kept locked - contact 01925 752388 or 755676 to arrange opening.
