St Mary's Old Church, Clophill
St Mary's Old Church, Clophill, Bedfordshire MK45 4BP
Ruinous Grade II* listed building and a scheduled ancient monument, first listed in 1961 and formerly called The Old Parish Church, but later re-listed under the name The Church of St. Mary The Virgin. The thickness of the walls and the position of the church indicate that it was originally built in the 11th century. It was probably built c.1350 in the Perpendicular style, the fabric being mostly of coarse ironstone rubble with ashlar dressings. The large perpendicular windows were added into the nave around 1450 in the 15th century.
