St Mary The Virgin, Godmanchester

Godmanchester has some real history attached to it. The walled Roman town of Durovigutum was on the site of present day Godmanchester. This was close to Ermine Street and several other major Roman roads, and was sacked by Anglo Saxons in the fourth century. There was a church recorded here at the time of the Domesday survey in 1087, and it is though that this recorded a structure which dated from the early 11th century. Much of the structure dates from the 14th and 15th centuries. The tower dominates the landscape for miles around, and was re-built in 1623, using materials from a previous structure. There is a ring of eight bells here, with each of the eight being struck by Downham Market founder Thomas Osborne.
