St Mary's Bolton on Swale


The church is a Grade II Listed Building built on the site of previous Norman and Saxon structures. The present building was erected during the early 14th century and was enlarged and restored by George Fowler Jones in 1859. An unusual stone roof exists in the vestry which seems to be a portion of the original Saxon structure.

In the church yard is the memorial to Henry Jenkins who is reputed to have lived to be 169 years old.
