St Mary In Arden has existed since the 13th century. An earthquake in 1625 damaged the church and it largely fell into disrepair until the late 17th century. Although the church was rebuilt, by the late 18th century it was again in a state of disrepair, and by 1950 it was derelict. In the 1960s most of the graveyard was cleared, leaving only a few headstones by the church building.
