St. Mary's Church
Wargrave Church is of Norman
origin, although little from this time remains. A notable exception is the
north doorway. John Buckingham, a 14th century Bishop of Lincoln, was
consecrated there in 1363. The fine west tower of brick dates from
1635. The church was largely rebuilt in 1914 after it was burnt down by
suffragettes. There is an interesting mausoleum by Lutyens in the churchyard
for the Hannen family and the famous Victorian surgeon, Sir Morell
Mackenzie, is buried near the lychgate.
