St Mary's Church is a parish church without rival. Elizabeth I called it "the fairest, goodliest, and most famous parish church in England". If any church could be mistaken for a cathedral it is indeed this one. The interior length measures 240 ft and its spire is 292 ft high.
The foundation date of the church is uncertain, but part of the tower dates from 1294. Building continued over the centuries, with much of the surviving internal furnishings dating from the 18th century.
