Long Description:
A Grade I listed building.
From the Mamble website:-
This ancient and lovely 13th Century church follows the traditional Celtic style of nave and chancel with lancet windows. The south aisle was added in the 14th century. The Blounts, the local "Lords of Sodington" added a 16th century North Chapel to provide them with a final resting place. This put Mamble into a small group of parish churches where an Anglican Church had a Roman Catholic chapel. The family moved away and the chapel deteriorated. The remains of the chapel illustrate the change from sandstone to brick.
The 12th century bell tower is the only one of two such wooden towers in England. It is unique in that so much of the original timber remains. The four main supports were made of oak and these supported the wooden bellcote capped by the wooden spire. Later the tower was incorporated in the church by the building of a surround wall of local yellow sandstone.
