Herringfleet, Saint Marys Church, On visiting this church there were three builders working on the site and lots of stay out fencing panels around the access. I asked if I may be able to go inside and see what was being done and told yes, the church should be re-ready in a couple of months though. I will go back, but this is how far builders have to go in both protecting stationary items and church artifacts. west tower, nave (13th Century), chancel (13th century), the lower part of the tower is round, the tower is fitted with a lancet window and the upper part is octagonal. The church has a thatched roof. Both parts of the tower are a rebuilding, probably of the early 16th century. Double-chamfered south doorway; north doorway bricked-up. Mid C19 boarded ceiling to chancel.In the sanctuary a trefoil-arched piscina and drop-sill sedilia. Rood loft stair in south wall of nave. Square font of Purbeck marble, 12th or 13th century, with small remains of decoration; there is a round shaft and 4 turned wooden corner supports, probably added in 16th or 17th century.
 Y-traceried windows to north and south, and a 4-light east window in matching style, apparently renewed mid19th century. There are 3 Consecration crosses that are visible on the walls, 2 in the nave and one in the chancel.
