View of church and farmhouse (where monastic buildings once stood) from the south. St. Mary's Church, Deerhurst, Gloucestershire, England. At first glance it is similar to other English parish churches: the clerestory is Perpendicular Gothic and the aisle windows are Tudor. But a closer look reveals a church with a rather unusual shape, resulting from the tall narrow Saxon nave that forms its core. And the west end features a 10th-century Saxon tower, a tall narrow structure of rubble masonry squeezed between the later side aisles.
