St Mary’s church is a most unusual Norman church, with original roof timbers. It was built about 1130, with the tower added in about 1200. It is looked after by English Heritage. More info here
It has very rare medieval wall paintings in the chancel, dating from the 12th century, which are often considered to be the finest in Britain. They had been whitewashed over, and were uncovered in 1871. There are more photos here
