Description

St. Bene't's (St Benedict's) Church predates the Norman conquest of England in 1066, and so the church stood long before the establishment of the university. The Anglo-Saxon tower remains, the semi-ruined sides noticeably more crude than the later Norman architecture. Inside there are colorful angels on the roof beams of the north transept, but more noteworthy is an arch and pair of lions dating from around 1000. Change-ringing (ringing bells to a tune), was first developed on these bells by Fabian Stedman. Call prior to visit for disabled access arrangements.
