|Name:||St Mary's Church, Bexwell|
This church has a Norman round tower and a nave and chancel in one. The tower's octagonal top dates to the late 14th century. The church was altered in the 14th and 15th centuries and then given a thorough Victorian restoration in 1874. The building was dilapidated by the 1980s, but after vigorous fund-raising by the local community and various grants it has now been restored again.
