The parish church of St Mary the Virgin is central to the tiny village of Erwarton.  It is steeped in history and a valued place within this community.  

Much of what can be seen today dates from the 15th century, the Perpendicular period of architecture, although a 14th century window in the rebuilt chancel reminds us that there was a church here much earlier than that.
