A brief History*<\/h2>\n

Fordham church dates back to 1087, when it was recorded as a gift from William the Conqueror to the Abbey of Bec<\/a> in Normandy.  The nave probably dates from this time.
\nThe church was largely re-built in the early 14th century at the  time when
Decorated<\/a> was evolving into Perpendicular<\/a> style.  The aisles were constructed, the porch and tower built and the chancel rebuilt.  In 1549 the wall were whitened and some stained glass removed.  A restoration was completed in 1861 when the windows were re-glazed, the floor tiled and the pews replaced.  None of the doors are original.
\nIn 2010 the church was re-ordered, with the organ and pews being removed to make more seating space, and an upstairs gallery added.<\/p>\n
