ⓘ St Marys Church, Longworth

The oldest parts of the church date to the 13th-century. The current chancel, west tower, and north aisle were built in the 15th century.

The tower has a ring of five bells. Richard Keene of Woodstock cast the third, fourth and tenor bells in 1662. Henry III Bagley of Chacombe, Northamptonshire, cast the second bell in 1746, presumably at his foundry at Witney. James Wells of Aldbourne, Wiltshire, cast the treble bell in 1807. St Marys has also a Sanctus bell that was cast in about 1890 by an unknown founder. The five bells are currently unringable.

On 21 November 1966, the church was designated a Grade I listed building.
