St. Mary’s Church, Hadlow

The church is dedicated to St. Mary, and was first mentioned in 975, thus it celebrated 1000 years in 1975. Hadlow was given to Eddeva in 1018, and parts of the church date to this time. The tower dates to the thirteenth century or earlier. The main door of the church has the date 1636 on it. This is often misread as 1036 due to most of the upper part of the first 6 being missing. The clock, by John Thwaites of Clerkenwell, dates from 1791. In the churchyard is a 19th century memorial to the drowning locally of 30 hop-pickers.
