Artist's Description

Brief history of Snt Mary,s church, Humberstone, Leicester.

The parish church of ST. Mary was originaly built in the 13th century, little remains but the tower and parts of the outer walls. The rain leaked through the church roof and various pieces of church furniture were scattered about the village in private houses.
Repairs had been carried out before the end of the 17th century. In 1692 the church was reported to be in good condition. The roofs were rebuilt during the restoration of 1857 but a few pieces of 15th century timber were used.
Six bells were rehung in 1948, the earliest is dated 1620 the rest date from 1628, 1673 and 1743.
In the north aisle is a table tomb with an alabaster top, bearing the figure of a man in armour. The marginal inscription is to Richard Holoft, dated 1547. The doors of the church are original.
The church belongs to the Church of England

This church is where i was christenend as a baby , so it,s special to me. I,m now finding out about the history of the church, something i,ve never really bothered about untill i was invited to a wedding there a couple of years ago.
