St Mary's Church information
St Mary's is one of the largest parish churches in England, and it contains the tomb of Mary Tudor – Henry VIII's sister and a one-time queen of France. Built around 1430, it's famous for its hammerbeam roof, which features a host of vampirelike angels swooping from the ceiling. A bell is still rung to mark curfew, as it was in the Middle Ages.
