St Mary's Church, Chipping Norton

Chipping Norton church from the north taken with a fisheye lens. There's apparently been a church here since before 1066 and the current church dates from the 12th century. Like many churches in East Anglia and the West Country it was built on the proceeds of wool. The current structure is though to have been built by the same "architect" who bult Eton College chapel. But of course it has been much altered over the years and completely wrecked by the Victorians. The interesting octagonal porch is wholly Victorian. The five nearest gravestones are to Noreen's ancestors and family.
