Wimbotsham Saint Mary's ChurchThe church was built around 1175. In 1853/4 the roof of the nave was altered from thatch to slate with the walls raised to suit. Both north and south doors are Norman. The original chancel was rebuilt complete with an apse over what was thought to be a prior structure, 1853/1854. Medieval-type carvings on pew ends by James Rattee at that time. Chancel with 3 side lancets to south but one in north to facilitate lean-to vestry with similar fenestration.Panelled scissor braced nave roof. Round font, flowers top and bottom of the bowl. Stone pulpit. Wimbotsham Saint Mary's Church has a west tower, north porch, fine Norman arch and doorway and two carved and engaged shafts, three orders above and modern tympanum. The north doorway is also Norman with one engaged shaft and two orders. Plain Norman chancel arch with two engaged shafts. The chancel has been much restored and the apsidal end added, but Cautley thought the corbel-table outside was original. There is a nice angle piscina in nave with boldly carved label stops.
