North Stoke, St Mary's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The interior features some very nice medieval glass; in the east window is a 14th-century panel depicting the Coronation of the Virgin, and there is further 14th-century glass in the low windows of the chancel and the east window in the north transept. There are sections of 14th-century wall paintings above the chancel arch and in niches to either side.
There are two 13th-century aumbreys, a pair of 13th-century piscinae, and the font is also 13th century. Of a similar date is the three-arched sedilia in the sanctuary. The corbels flanking the east window are worth noting; these probably date from the middle of the 13th century and boast very fine carved foliage and small heads.
More fine carvings can be found on the west wall, including a carved hand and a depiction of a sheep.
St Mary's is no longer used for regular worship and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, who keep it open daily.
