Discover St Mary's Church, Thorpe
It is impossible to say exactly when St. Mary's Church was built but we do know that Thorpe, or 'Torp', meaning village with a church or chapel in Old English is listed in the Domesday Book of 1086.
Thorpe Village is situated just inside the circle of the western part of the M25 and to the west of the M3 and Thorpe Park. The Village appears to be an island: a former rural community which has survived the construction of nearby motorways and gravel pit extraction. Much of the local surroundings are now a conservation area and of great beauty.
