St Mary, Standon

In the centre of an attractive village. There is an almost detached 15th century tower and the church steps steeply up a hillside. The upper parts of the churchyard are level with the aisle roofs. The chancel is 13th century. The nave is 14th century with the west porch of the 15th century. It was restored in 1864-65 by G & H Godwin. There was a reordering completed in August 2017 that installed a nave altar dais, kitchen and toilet and this work is easily distinguished below from the red carpet.
