St Mary's Church is the parish church for Stamfordham. There was an early medieval Saxon church here in the eighth century. An arch from this building can be seen in the Norman medieval tower, built in the 13th century. The church was restored in 1848, and there are striking Victorian floor tiles in the sanctuary. Medieval items in the church include grave covers, a tomb, an effigy of a knight and a relief built into a wall.
