I know there are many churches with that name around the country but this one is in the Village of Cholsey and local to me. The church is like many others you see and dates back to Saxon times being founded in 986. It's also the churchyard where Agatha Christie is buried. There used to be a fine Yew tree in the churchyard at one time but it was blown down. It used to be near the South Trancept you can see what it looked like Here
These two photo's are looking up and down the Nave. The church was reordered so the pews which I remember have now gone though unlike other churches I've seen St Mary's the church has been done more sympathetic to it's heratige.
This is the dedication on the base of one window in the chancel
On the opposite side is another. There are six stained glass windows in the chancel.
These impressive windows are in the nave of the church with the one on the right being at the end.
war memorial takes pride of place in the nave. The one above is another though I must find out what happened to the Childrens library.
You can find these two carvings on the chancel windowsill
On another windowsill you can find this lead work which was saved off the roof when it was re done
Edward Giles was a bit of a graffiti artist.
note the name what you see is an original broad guage train which first ran on the railway built by Stevenson.
If you are here to visit Agatha Christie then take some time to look at the other headstones and memorials
Which you can find in he churchyard .
Agatha Christie she is over in the far right hand corner of the churchyard behind the church. Happy Easter
