Stoke Talmage seems to have had a parish church since the 11th century, although the first clear historical reference to it dates from 1219.[3] The Church of England parish church of Saint Mary Magdalene was restored in 1758.[3] In 1860 it was restored again and extended to plans by George Gilbert Scott.[3]

St. Mary Magdalene Rectory was built in 1752.[4] It was extended in 1820 by the builder and architect Daniel Harris.[4]
