Imagine at the time of the Domesday Book, 1086 AD, when the value of Dalham was put at 60 Shillings and goes on to state 'One Church with 40 acres of land and half a plough team, value 5 shillings' [Annual value]

The tower to St Mary's church was rebuilt in 1626 for the sum of 400 this had a small wooden steeple attached to its top, but on the night that Oliver Cromwell died the steeple fell in the great storm on 3rd September 1658.

The church alignment of 13 degrees east of true north from east to west indicates that the church foundations date from Saxon times c900 AD, in 1300 true and magnetic north coincided which means that the Saxon Church was truly once aligned
