St Mary Magdalene's Church, Monkton Church

Image Source: Edwardian Postcard


A church of great charm that is smaller than it once was. Clearly visible outside in the north wall is a series of five blocked arches that formerly led into an aisle. The church is basically twelfth century, much remodelled a hundred years later. An unusual Norman piscina in the south-east corner is very low in the wall and shows the drastic raising of the floor that took place in the restoration of 1860. There are some good hanging wall monuments and accompanying hatchment, and a fine medieval brass to a priest. The Jacobean pulpit has an hourglass stand for the preacher to time his sermon.
