Great Eversden

History of St Mary’s, Great Eversden, Cambridgeshire.

There has been a church at Great Eversden since at least the 1092, however, no traces of this church remain.  The original church was replaced by one built of field stone and clunch in the 13th century, this however was raised to the ground after having been struck by lightning in the mid 15th century.  

The earliest features now visible date from about 1470, when the chancel, nave and bell tower were build.  The misericords were probably installed at this time.   The timber framed north porch has a date of 1636 inscribed in the plasterwork, so it is assumed that it dates from then as does the communion table.  

Restoration work was carried out in both 1864 and 1920.
