Hampstead Norreys Church, Berkshire

St Mary's Church in Hampstead Norreys dates mostly from the 12th Century - probably making it of an age with the nearby earthwork castle. The tower was made taller in the 15th Century and a lot of restoration occurred in the Victorian period.

In 1450 the parish was named Hampstead Norreys (instead of merely Hampstead) when the Norreys family bought the manor and village.
