Churches (54) : St Mary the Virgin, Oxted

The parish church of St Mary the Virgin in Oxted, Surrey dates from the 12th century though only the Bargate stone tower survives from this time. The top of the tower has has "battlements" and a parapet. The church was mentioned in the Domesday Book though nothing of the church from those times remains.

The chancel (13th), aisles (14th) and porch (15th) are later additions and largely made from rubblestone with a brick dressing. The church was restored in the 19th century.
