|ST MARY THE VIRGIN CHURCH|
The parish church of St Mary the Virgin has been a continuous place of Christian worship for over eight hundred years. The church probably succeeded an earlier Saxon church on the same site. This was mentioned in the Domesday Survey (or census) in 1086 as a 'church in Bixle' where it is said that St Paulinus came to preach.

|ST MARY'S CHURCH|
St Mary's church Stansted is known to have been in existence in 1312 when a John de Hynton took sanctuary in it. It is probable that it was built in the early part of the 13th century although there is reference to a chapel at Stanstede in the first half of the 12th century
