The altar was built by a local craftsman, in 1967, and includes some oak from an earlier altar. Also, in 1967, pews were installed to replace chairs. The pews had previously been in the church of St Mark at Camberwell in London.
Wansford is some times called Wansford-in-England, because, so legend has it, many years ago a man fell asleep on a haystack. The hay stack fell in to the river and he and the haystack were both washed down the river. When the man was rescued he asked where he was and was told "Wansford". "What--Wansford in England?" the man asked "The very same" he was told. Not sure if this is true, but it is a nice story anyway. You can't beat a good urban myth...or in this case, a good rural myth.
A lovely church in a delightful village. The church of St Mary The Virgin is well worth visiting should you be in the area.
