Chapel of the Holy Cross, Codford

In 1317 Sir Oliver de Ingham, the lord of the manor, was granted permission by Edward II to provide two acres of land in Crouchland to Henry de Marey (Marsh). Henry was a chaplain and hermit who then built a chapel and hermitage. The boundary of the hermitage adjoined the churchyard and was supposedly marked by two yew trees. Two wooden candlesticks in St. Mary's Church are made of wood from one of these ancient yews.
