Newent St Mary, Gloucestershire.

Burgums and Burghams of the "FF" family tree lived here, or nearby.

NEWENT ST MARY is located in Church Street and dates from the 13th century. Of particular interest is the ceiling, made from Forest of Dean timber, and is the largest unsupported wooden ceiling in the whole country. The spire reaching 150 feet high has been replaced and repaired numerous time; it sits on top of a 14th century tower. The last restoration was in 1968.

In the porch is a cross shaft thought to date from the 9th century. It was found in the churchyard in 1907. Perhaps the most serious damage to the church occurred in the 17th century when weight of snow caused thr roof over the nave to collapse.
