Higham Ferrers, St Marys

The church owes it’s grandeur to the fact that the town was, and still is part of the Duchy of Lancaster. The fascinating ancillary buildings – Bede House, the college and the school are all connected with Archbishop Chichele ( c.1364 – 1433) who was born here. The church was built in the thirteenth century and then enlarged in the fourteenth. It is large with a magnificent town spire ( the latter rebuilt after a fire in 1631) At it’s base sculpture close in style to that at Westminster Abbey c. 1220 -80. Internally a sort of double nave one leading to the chancel the other to a Lady Chapel from the medieval period also Misericords and Brasses.
