About this spot
The first thing you notice about St Mary’s church is its size, because this fine mediaeval building, which is in the perpendicular style, is visible from many miles away. Although there is evidence of an anchorage on this site dating back to Anglo Saxon times and the lower part of the tower is Norman, most of the current building dates from the 15th century and is attributed to the architect Master Mason Reginald Ely, who also worked on King’s College chapel. The tradition in Burwell is that he ‘practised’ on King’s College and then did his best work on St Mary’s church.
