St Helen's dates from 12th century, with the north aisle added in 1380, between the choir and the north aisle is a mediaeval tomb to Sir Roger Trehampton, one of the Knights Templar.
St Mary's curious appearance reflects an unusual and calamitous history. The church dates from the 12th century and has interesting features including a superb English Decorated period Gothic Font, a fine Jacobean pulpit complete with tester, delightfully rustic medieval pew ends and an unusual altar Baldacchino amongst other amazing artefacts.
By tradition and belief, our quaint and delightfully odd little church of St Mary Knaith, in its charming setting once formed some part of the monastic complex of Heynings Priory. A free guided tour of our church is available with tales of naughty nuns, civil war intrigue, and fabulous fortunes won, lost and given away. A history of the church and two leaflets are also available.
