Tasburgh, Saint Mary Church, NR15-1NB.


Tasburgh, Saint Mary Church, near Long Stratton, round west tower, 5 bells, nave, chancel and south porch. This church is built on a portion of the Roman camp. The tower is Saxon-Norman, the top being somewhat later than the base. The rest of the church was built in 1360, and is consequently transitional Decorated and perpendicular. There are some brasses from the 16th century onwards. There are memorials to the Newse 1610 and Baxter family, also to past rectors. Tasburgh, Saint Mary Church, west tower, south and west porches, nave and chancel. I feel sure this tower is pre-Conquest. Inside it has a doorway on the east high up, and outside it has shallow arcading midway, worked in the rubble very much like Thorrington Suffolk. Modern roofs and benches but a nice font with carved bowl and shaft. Fragments of 14th century screen and a table monument south side of sanctuary with a niche at back obviously used as an Easter Sepulchre.
The organ is built or constructed by Norman & Beard Ltd of London.
