Saint-Mary's church Newnham Murren in WALLINGFORD / United Kingdom description:

Largely Gothic church building in silex rubbles devoted to Our lay Mary. The building is protected, but not in use as church anymore.

The church has a single-aisled nave and dates from the 12th century (1120 is mentionned) with modifications during the 13th and 14th century. The wooden pentice in front of the portico was added during a thourough renovation in the middle of 19th century (1849).

Gothic elements are lancet windows and tracery in one of the windows. But there are also Normal elements like the rounded arches above the porche and between the nave and the choir.

The wooden truss dates from the Middle Agess.

There is a Jacobine pulpit.

On the south side, there is a remarquable monument hanging: an Elizabethan style brass showing Letitia Barnard kneeled at prayingr, her 4 children behind her. If youlook well, you see a hole in it at her hands. This is probably the result of a musket ball fired during the Civil war siege of Wallingford in 1646.
