St Mary Magdalene Church
Visitors are immediately struck by the enormity of this parish church. Built during the 13th and 14th Century by the de Cobham family, it is renowned for its collection of rare medieval brasses, said to be the finest in the world. Fifteen of these form a ‘pavement’ in the chancel and are available for rubbing by appointment. The Chancel also contains the 16th century Brooke Tomb, complete with effigies of the then Lord Cobham and his wife, which is a particularly high quality sculpture for Elizabethan times.
