History of St.Mary Magdalene

A small church existed at Twyning in 740 and by the 10th century was part of the Winchcombe Abbey Estate. The great size of the building indicates the early importance of the monastic settlement of Worcester and Winchcombe abbey.

The current Parish Church of Saint Mary Magdalene is a Grade 2 listed Norman building with interesting monuments and six bells. The church dates from the 11th century and some of its Norman features can be still be seen today. The church has two Norman doorways and a late Norman Chancel arch. The tower and font are 13th/14th century and there are some original 15th century beams in the nave roof.
