Notes: "The parish church of St Mary Magdalene dates from the 13th Century, although most of what we see now was built in the 15th Century. The tower and spire were built in the 13th and 14th Century, and there is a Norman window above the tower arch. In the north arcade of the church there is a column with an interesting frieze around the top. It depicts four figures lying head to head - a lady, two armed knights and a clergyman. They are thought to be St Mary Magdalene, the Abbot of Peterborough and the Medieval Lords of the Manor for Cottingham and Middleton, symbolising the authority of the church, the parish and the two manors."
