One of the 5 churches in Melbourne, Melbourne Parish Church has a beautifully unique character to it. Its alternative name is “cathedral in miniature” because of the centrality of it as a component of the village. The first record of the Parish Church was in the early 11th c. where mentions were made in the The Domesday Book. The current church, however, is speculated to have been built in the early 12th c. where it proudly displays all the original masonry from that time. Some restorations have taken place in the 17th c., where structural components such as the eastern part of the roof, the nave, aisles, and aisle windows have been restored.
