Inside St Mary's Church, Foy

Recent Photograph of Inside St Mary's Church (Foy)

Inside there is much of interest - a 17th century pulpit, a fancy screen of a similar age (heavily restored) which incorporates parts of an earlier loft with small carvings: my favourite is of a hedgehog or wild boar no more than five inches across.

In a cusped recess by the pulpit (presumably once an altar recess) is a small 13th century effigy. The glass in the east window is dated 1670. Come here - the setting alone repays, but the fascinating contents will detain the church enthusiast as well.
