The north doorway of the nave has a round arch, though the doorway was altered in the 14th or 15th century. However, this indicates that the nave probably originated in the 12th century but has been rebuilt later. The church mostly dates from c.1300 and the 15th century, with a restoration in 1881. The font is the only 12th century carving in the building.


As recorded in the Domesday Survey, both before and after the Conquest Christian Malford was part of the extensive land holdings of The Church of St Mary, Glastonbury.


Interior Features





The font was illustrated by Buckler in the early 19th century (volume VIII, plate 20).
