Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Oxfordshire / Wallingford / Ewelme / St. Mary the Virgin Church
St Mary the Virgin's Church is in centre of the village of Fawley, Buckinghamshire, England. It is an active Anglican parish church on the deanery of Wycombe, the archdeaconry of Buckingham, and the diocese of Oxford. Its benefice has been united with those of five other local churches to form the benefice of Hambleden Valley. The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building.HistoryThe church originated in the 12th century as a simple nave and chancel. The tower was added during the following century, and raised to its present height in the 16th century. The chancel was rebuilt in 1748. In 1882–83 the church was restored and extended by the Lancaster architects Paley and Austin. This included raising the nave walls, rebuilding the tower arch, replacing the nave roof, adding a north transept, a vestry and new windows, and refacing the south transept, opening it up to the nave by adding an arch.St. Mary the Virgin Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Ewelme Edition.
