The largest parish church in the UK is the Parish Church of the Most Holy and Undivided Trinity at Kingston-upon-Hull. Its external length is 87.7 metres (288 ft). It is made of brick and was constructed circa 1285.
The remains of the largest discovered Anglo-Saxon Church was found at Circencester and measured 55 metres long. The oldest remaining Anglo-Saxon church is St. Peter-on-the-Wall, at Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex dated from AD 654-660. However, the Church of Winchester (replaced by the Norman Cathedral, 1093) was built by King Cenwalh of Wessex circa AD 648 and was 30 metres long., although this seems to be enlarged to a church of a length of 76 metres by the 10th century.
