Church overview and information - tap/scroll 

At 13 ft below sea level, this is the lowest of the Marsh churches, in its elevation.

The south entrance is through an impressive Norman doorway, with typical rounded arch and chevron mouldings, topped by a grotesque man’s face.

Two of the original medieval bells dating from around 1375 are still being rung today - while the original tenor bell dedicated to the Magdalene, sadly now cracked, can be seen on the floor of the church.
