Saint Mary’s church is sited in the grounds of the University and was built by Bishop John Kaye. He was the first Bishop to reside in Riseholme Hall and he had this attractive 14th century church built at his own expense to a design by S.S. Teulon.

It was consecrated on 7th August 1851. A visit to see the East window and the Chancel window presented by Balliol College, Oxford is a must. Bishop John Kaye and the noted Bishop Christopher Wordsworth are both buried in the churchyard.
