The oldest sections of St Mary's Church, Kersey, date back to the 12th Century. However, other sections of the church were added in later years. After the construction of the tower was interrupted by an outbreak of the Black Death, in 1349, it was finally completed in 1481. The church is beautifully decorated with carvings in wood and stone, especially the south porch which is replete with delicate details. Inside you can also see the six panels of the original rood screen which was almost lost during the Reformation, as well as a 12th Century font. All this and more makes St. Mary's a site of interest for those with an appreciation for fine architecture and design.
