North Stoke, United Kingdom

North Stoke is a small village beside the River Thames in the Crowmarsh civil parish in South Oxfordshire, 2 miles (3.2 km) south of the market town of Wallingford. Its Church of St Mary is Grade I listed.

The Church of England parish church of Saint Mary was built in the 1230s when Robert de Esthall was the vicar. His memorial slab (1274) may be seen in the chancel. There are the remains of a Saxon piscina and rumours that the chest in the chancel is a 13th-century crusader chest. Most notable, however, are the large number of 14th century wall paintings. Consequent on these factors, it is Grade I listed. The original tower collapsed in 1669 and was not rebuilt until 1725. St. Mary's parish is now a member of The Langtree Team Ministry: a Church of England benefice that includes also the parishes of Checkendon, Ipsden, Stoke Row, Whitchurch-on-Thames and Woodcote.
