Higham Ferrers, St Mary

Higham Ferrers, St Mary

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.
