Bexwell St Mary's Church



Bexwell St Mary's Church, The church of St Mary is judged by architectural historians to be of Saxon origin, appeared in the Domesday Book of 1087,
The church has a round tower, the tower taking the height to fifty five feet, there are no stairs in the tower as in very early times ladders were used to access the upper floors and this explains the doorways in the east and west walls. An archway of Saxon construction links the tower to the nave, it too has Saxon windows.
Over the years, the church has seen some restoration, In 1854, the church was restored once more, a new floor with tiles was installed, removable pew benches with back book shelving complete, provided. These have now this year been replaced with chairs. Bexwell and associating villages have a history with nearby air bases, Bexwell itself straddling the main road near Downham Market. Base one side, church adjacent.  The church of St Mary is described as mainly of carrstone, partly Perpendicular, part Saxon, partly Norman, with a round tower, half round, half octagonal with one bell. In 1845 the rectory built as in the gift of the Bishop of Ely and in the incumbency of the Rector, Mr Howman.Postcode PE38.....
