Situated in beautiful countryside, St Mary’s offers visitors a chance to see the Aldworth Giants!
Mary’s church in Aldworth dates back in part to around 1200.
The Yew tree in the churchyard is at least 1000 years old and though it has been struck by lightning and blown over in a storm it is still partly alive.
Unique in representing so many of an ancient family in such a small parish, nine members of the de la Beche family lie in stately stone splendour in the little church of St. Mary’s, Aldworth.
The church holds its own fund-raising events: a variety of concerts and, every week, during the summer months, well attended afternoon teas attract visitors from far and wide.
Other major visitor attractions include the well maintained and famous Aldworth Giant Effigies of the De La Beche family in the church itself and also the historic Ridgeway Walk.
Another afternoon tea group for “local oldies” is held regularly in private homes.
