Gilcrux – St Mary’s Church

St Mary’s Church, Gilcrux, dates to around 1100 and is believed to be Norman, although there are aspects of Anglo Saxon architecture that suggest it might be slightly earlier. Christian worship at this site predates the Church, evidenced by the remnants of an ancient cross dating to the first millenium.
