    St. Mary's Parish Church, Woodbridge, Suffolk, England

    A very brief history of St Mary's Parish Church, Woodbridge.

    The Domesday Book records in 1086 that in "Wodebryge" there was "A church with 19 acres valued at 2 shillings". The indications are that this was a Saxon church, built probably at the close of the tenth century, so that there has been a church on this site for nearly a thousand years. The present building dates from the beginning of the fifteenth century.
