St Mary's church stands on the north bank of the River Thames, near an ancient ford. The striking Perpendicular tower was built by John of Gaunt, and the tower ceiling is painted with heraldic designs. Nailed to the door of the church is a horseshoe lost by the Earl of Lancaster's horse as the Earl rode off to war in the mid-14th century.
