Churches (36) : St Mary, Haddenham

St Mary's church in the Buckinghamshire village of Haddenham dates the twelfth century and has it's origin in a Norman church owned by the Benedictine abbey of Rochester. The church was likely built on the site of an earlier Saxon church and some traces of this church may remain.

The chancel, tower and arcades date from the thirteenth century, the tower is to the Early English Gothic style. The church was restored in Victorian times with a plastered ceiling added [1]. The church received a major refurbishment in 2008.
