St.Mary’s Church. The oldest part dates from 1220 and there were ‘restorations’ in 1862 and, after a fire in the 1960s, was renovated and restored again. The building is flint rubble and there is a bell turret which is weather boarded with a shingled broach spire and weathercock. There are two 12th stone coffins and many monuments.
Great Tawney Hall. 17th house, timber framed and weather boarded – a rainwater pipe is dated 1762. There is a moat adjacent. Barn from 17th, timber framed and weather boarded
