Description:

If you like your churches grand and opulent, stay away from St Mary’s, Craswall. This tiny Norman church has remained pretty well untouched by time, except in the 18th century when the west end was cut off by a wall to provide a school room: at the same time a west gallery was installed.

Apart from that, it has remained plain and simple, except for the huge number of hooks around the walls, whether to hang chairs when the church was not being used for worship (as the Vicar thinks) or for hats (as everyone else thinks). Its very remoteness is somehow enhanced by the fact that it stands in a field: the ground is too rocky to have allowed it to be used for burial.
