Lyng's Church


St. Margaret's is still in use today and has regular services operated by the Church Of England.

Externally, the church appears to be 17th to 18th century, due to a large renovation that took place around that time.  The nave dates from the 15th century, when it was most probably enlarged from the original medieval church which stood there.


St. Margaret's also houses a very historic artefact of an altar cloth which was made in the 19th century from at least two vestments from the 15th century.
