Path to the village church, English Bicknor
St Mary the Virgin is part of the Church of England Diocese of Gloucester. The church website states that this is a Norman church, dating from 1100, standing in an oval churchyard of Saxon origin. The area is the courtyard of the motte and bailey castle which was destroyed in the 14th century. Originally the tower was in the centre of the church. It was made from soft local sandstone which fell down. Rather than rebuilding it, the Normans built a new western tower.
The building was Grade I listed in 1953.
