Sedgeberrow

 

Anglican: St Mary


A 14th century church in the Decorated style. Unusual octagonal tower and spire from the same date. William Butterfield carried out a major, but sympathetic, restoration in 1867/68, the wooden screen dividing the nave and chancel, and the ornate reredos are his. St Mary's is not normally open but keyholder details available.
