Pocket Guide: Saffron Walden Church of St. Mary Hotels

The Church of St. Mary is the parish church for Great Dunmow in Essex. Although the town itself dates back to Saxon times, the church was built during the 14th century, with many of its original features still in place, such as the beautiful wooden ceiling above the chancel. The church is open for visitors and is well worth stopping by if you're in staying in one of the great hotels in Great Dunmow and looking to explore the ecclesiastical history of the region.

The Church of St. Mary is happy to welcome visitors, and is open during daytime hours. Upon entering the church, you'll find various displays, including displays of bell ringing certificates and a poignant memorial to the War dead. One of the church's former chaplains, Noel Mellish, became the first chaplain to receive the Victoria Cross during WWI; he later became the subject of a book, a Chaplain's War. The Church of St. Mary is not merely a tourist attraction, but also an important centre of community, regularly hosting community events, including lots of activities for children.

Close to Great Hotels in Dunmow

It's very easy to reach the church if you're staying in Dunmow or the surrounding areas. There are lots of quality Essex hotels and guesthouses located nearby, many of which are in Dunmow itself. Homelye Far Courtyards B&B offers charming accommodation located on Braintree Road, for example. Alternatively, Dunmow Guest House lays claim to being the only guesthouse in Dunmow with its own indoor swimming pool!

Explore a Town That Takes the Bacon from Hotels in Dunmow

Great Dunmow, where you'll find the Church of St. Mary, is one of the oldest market towns in Britain, dating back to Roman times. It was during Saxon times that the town really took off and it was around this time that it’s most famous tradition laid roots. The Fitch Trials take place every year, still to this day, where couples must convince a jury that they've never argued or wished themselves unwed. If they are successful, they are paraded through town and are awarded a side of bacon - makes sense!
