About St Mary-le-More, Wallingford
The church you now see in the Market Place was largely rebuilt in 1854 at a cost of £2,400, but a church on this site goes back to the Norman times (with a rebuild at the end of the 13th Century).
The last major renewal took place in 2009/10. The tower was rebuilt in 1653, following consideravble damage in a thunderstorm, partly re-using stones from Wallingford Castle, demolished a year earlier on the orders of Cromwell.
The churches of St Mary-le-More and St Leonard’s in Wallingford, with St Agatha’s & St James’ in Brightwell-cum-Sotwell and St Mary Magdalene in Crowmarsh Gifford form the Wallingford Team in the Church of England, Diocese of Oxford.
Together, all provide a strong Christian community ministering to the needs of all. They welcome anyone to services and activities, whether visiting or living in the area.
