Howe Saint Mary the Virgin Church, has west tower, south porch, nave and chancel. This small church has modern roofs and benches, and the only interesting thing is the round Saxon tower, whish on north and south sides small circular windows, with concentric splays on each side, and an opening on the east side high up over the later tower arch. Howe Saint Mary the Virgin Church church close to nearby Brooke, with its round tower, has 1 bell, nave chancel and south porch. The tower capped with a conical roof, on a Saxon tower. The rest of the church is Decorated with slight traces of earlier work incorporated. The rood stairs remain. Once open, and locked on the day I visited, I fine it hard to see that Cautley, Messent and also Pevsner wrote about this church. With such a beautiful looking building, I find it hard to see why the church is locked.
