  • the Norman font is in the Aylesbury style; and

St. Paul’s, Bledlow Ridge
St. Mary and St. Nicholas in Saunderton Originally, Saunderton had two manors and two churches. However, St Nicholas’ fell into decay and was demolished in 1452, while the remaining church, St Mary’s, dating back to 1227, became known as St Mary & St Nicholas.
It is a Grade II* listed building, built on the site of a Roman villa. In 1886 the outer walls began to lean inwards, so most of the building was demolished and rebuilt using, wherever possible, the original materials. As a result much remains of the old structure and fittings.
