General description of St Mary's Church

      Our Stone Crucifix was erected to commemorate Archdeacon Denison, who was our vicar for 51 years.  His full name was George Anthony Dennison and he came to St Mary's Church of the Blessed Virgin in 1845 and he died in 1896.        Following an epidemic of diphtheria he was responsible for damming the stream on the knoll and providing the village with its first supply of clean drinking water.  In 1837 together with Churchwarden John Higgs he founded the famous East Brent Harvest Home which is still carried out in late August.
