231 BEESTON NEXT MILEHAM St Mary

St Mary's is a large church with tall nave and lofty spire it seems almost cathedral like, and it sits in the middle of nowhere, the tower and spire were damaged in a storm in the 19th century and the impressive spire you see here was the replacement.

The original Decorated clerestory was replaced in the 1300's and was raised enough for an east window to be placed in the nave above the chancel roof.
