St Mary the Less Chilbolton

Village Street, Chilbolton, Hampshire, SO20 6BQ

Link St Mary the Less on the Chilbolton and Wherwell website

The church is a prominent building within the village of Chilbolton and is well supported by the community. The name St Mary-the-Less is somewhat of a mystery and it is not really known to which St Mary the church is dedicated. The church was built in the 12th century and extensive alterations have been made over the years.
