A very warm welcome awaits inside our unique and fascinating Church
Described as “odd, but delightful with stunning views of the River Trent”, St Mary’s curious appearance reflects an intriguing and calamitous history. The church dates from c1330 and has interesting features including a superb Gothic font, a fine Jacobean pulpit complete with tester, medieval pew ends, and an unusual altar Baldacchino among many other amazing artefacts.
A free guided tour is available with tales of naughty nuns, civil war intrigue and fabulous fortunes won, lost and given away.

“This very splendid font is we think altogether the handsomest we ever saw…”
