Wonderland legend of St Mary's white rabbit
ST MARY'S Church was founded in 1120.
It is known for a rabbit carved in the stonework above the door to the sacristy.
Created in about 1325, the rabbit was supposedly an inspiration for Lewis Carroll's Mad March Hare in his story Alice In Wonderland.
Known in the church as the pilgrim rabbit, it looks similar to illustrations in Carroll's book by 19th-century artist John Tenniel. The Mad March Hare and his friend The Hatter are met by Alice at a tea party. They behave as if it is always teatime, because The Hatter murdered time and got stuck at 6pm forever.
