South Perrott Church, Dorset

St. Mary’s is a fairly standard-looking mid-medieval period English parish church. The oldest parts – the crossing, transepts, nave and west porch – are all 13th Century. The tower was built in the 15th and the south chapel was added in the 16th.

The chancel and south chapel were heavily rebuilt between 1907 and 1913 and it seems likely that more changes were only stopped by World War I. In the interbellum, in 1927 to be precise, the whole ring of six bells was replaced with ones from the Whitechapel foundry.
