Description

St Mary's, Tansor

This is a lovely setting for a village church. St Mary's sits on a junction, in the centre of the village with Fotheringhay off to the north, and Cotterstock and the market town of Oundle off to the south.   There was no church noted in Tansor at the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086. The church of St Mary itself dates from the 12th century. The tower is a squat affair dating from Norman times. There are three bells in the tower. The earliest of these comes from London and was cast in the 15th century. One is from Newcombe at Leicester and is dated from the 16th century. The third was cast local by the Norris family at Stamford, Tobias Norris casting this bell in 1611.
