Southery Saint Mary's Church.


Southery Saint Mary's Church, is not a very old church, as of 1858/1859 most of the parts of this church was new. Southery is built mainly of local carrstone with bands of Wansford stone. It also has Ancaster stone dressing for its quoins and frames of its doors and windows. The church was suggested by the Rector of 1855, who allowed the older smaller church to go into disrepair. A larger church was built! Walter Robinson of London drew up the plans and the rest is history. Mr W. Robinson was the son of one of the Chuchwardens of the old Southery Church. For his deeds he received £20.13.6 The builder Charles Bennett of King's Lynn £1710 and the whole build costing just £1883.17.3. Ruins of the old church still lie some 300 yards up the road to the north east of the new church, it was a small, modest church consisting of a nave and chancel, built with a mixture of flint, ferricrete, brick and limestone. Blomefield writing in 1740 records a tower, which collapsed soon after. The nave was shortened, and new west wall built in 1747, reusing old materials. The roof was removed in 1949, but much of the walling still stands. Southery Saint Mary's Church, Square west tower with broach spire, a clock and 1 bell, nave with south aisle but no clerestory, chancel and north porch. The church was built in 1858, on a new site, in a copy of the Early English style. There is a good deal of local carrstone in the walls, and a number of 19th century stained glass memorial windows.
The organ is built or constructed by Norman & Beard Ltd of London.
