St Mary the Virgin

 

There has been a church on the site of St Mary the Virgin in Buckland since before the 1086 Domesday Book. The church has a 12th century Norman nave while the chancel, tower and transepts are 13th century. The Yate and Throckmorton Catholic families from the adjacent Buckland Manor regarded the north transept as their family chapel, and the church had a Catholic patron until 1910.

The roof of St Mary the Virgin currently leaks and the urgent repairs being part-funded by the National Churches Trust will make it watertight - and safe.  The completion of the project will result in the church being removed from the Historic England At Risk Register.
