IMPORTANT INFORMATION - ADDITIONAL TO BROCHURE: On Sunday May 15th, from approximately 1pm to 1:30pm, there will be a Christening in the church, so it will be unavailable to festival visitors for this short time. An external guided walk and tour will be offered to visitors for the duration of the Christening. Apologies for any inconvenience. 

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.

St Mary’s English Decorated period Gothic font has been described thus:
“This very splendid font is we think altogether the handsomest we ever saw…”
