St Mary’s (Donhead St Mary)

St. Mary’s Church was built by the 12th century. The architecture of the church covers the 12th to 13th centuries, with 19th century restoration. It is built of dressed limestone with a tiled roof. The gabled porch is 14th century. All of the chapel and aisle windows are square-headed and the three stage west tower is 15th century. The nave has a five bay wagon roof and a 19th century Perpendicular style screen filling the arch. The north arcade has three double chamfered arches and there is a restored late medieval lean-to roof in the aisle. The chancel contains a 13th century style east window and a 19th century wooden pointed barrel-vaulted roof.
