St Mary le More (to give its full title, as opposed to St Mary the Less, which also existed in Wallingford in medieval times) is not the oldest of the present churches in our town. That honour goes to St Leonard’s Church, on the river bank, which dates back to Saxon times. There has been a church on the market square, however, since Norman times, and we know that that church was rebuilt at the end of the 13th century. The church you now see in the market place was largely rebuilt in 1854 at the cost of £2,400. The last major renewal took place in 2009–10.

Parking

The many car parks in the town are mostly free on Sundays.
