There are records of a chapel in Woburn in 1245, possibly on the site of Old St. Mary’s Church, that is now the Heritage Centre. In the early 1500’s Robert Hobbes, the last Abbott of Woburn, had the chapel re-built and the first incumbent is recorded as Samuel Walpoole in 1558. The tower was built in 1635 for Sir Francis Staunton, using materials from the old church in Birchmore. The tower was originally topped with a wooden lantern and a small bell.
