St Mary’s Church


Overview

This historic building, open daily from 8.45 am to 5.00 pm, is well worth the visit. Built in the 15th century by townspeople on a site where Christians have worshipped for over a thousand years. St Mary’s congregation welcome you to join their services. Time and details in the Church porch or on their website.

Of particular interest to visitors are: the magnificent 15th century sandstone rood screen; the Kempe stained glass window; the Willis organ built in 1861; the restored oak waggon roof; the fine brass candelabrum in the nave; the Blackhall monument and the memorial plaque to Walter Venning (1781-1821), Russian prison reformer.

The church is also used for music events throughout the year.
