History of St Mary the Virgin, Gayton, Northamptonshire.

There has been a church at Gayton, Northants, since at lease 1060, and it is mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086.  Originally dedicated to “Our Lady” and re-dedicated in 1516 to St Mary the Virgin, which seem’s more of a semantic change than anything else.  

The church is built of ironstone and is almost square in shape, with the exclusion of the west tower and the boiler room - the north and south nave aisles run directly into the north and south chapels, which although being slightly longer than the chancel lead to the church having a straight east wall - the south chapel now houses the organ.  The chancel is again square, housing the choir with their misericords.  The West tower was built in three phases, 12th century with plain lancet windows, the next floor is either late 12th or early 13th century and has plate traceried windows, finally the crenellated top floor with it’s bell louvers is 19th century.  The font is the only Norman (Romanesque)  feature left in the church.

The misericords date from the 14th and 15th century, however it is believed that the supporters of N01, S01-03 are later additions, and may be by foreign carvers.  The misericords probably originated at Dunston Abbey.

As of March 2008, I have not been able to find an official website for St Mary’s Gayton.
