2. The setting of the Church is in effect similar to a Cathedral Close on a small scale, and the variety of housing lining the sides of St Mary's Square, including the Museum and Prebendal House provides an architectural background of considerable interest and importance. Mainly C13 built partly on site of Saxon Church and extensively restored between 1804 - 1809. Cruciform plan. Saxon crypt under Lady Chapel, Norman font. Good C16 monument to Lady Lee in North Transept. Many good tombs in church yard.
