Abbey Church of St Mary and St Ethelflaeda

(Formerly listed as Abbey Church of St Mary)

I

Probable foundation 907 by Edward the Elder. Reconstituted by Edgar 967 and dedicated to St Mary and St Ethelflaeda (Elfleda). The existing building dates mainly from C12, rebuilding continuing probably until circa 1230. Built of stone from Chilmark. Romsey Road outside west wall of south transept; C13 wall painting. (See VCH). The churchyard has a broad central walk lined with pollarded trees and forms a pleasant garden space close to the town. Arrangement of the churchyard and approach to the church from the east are both excellent.
