St Mary the Virgin

St Mary the Virgin

Weston Turville, GB

A very warm welcome to our beautiful medieval church, which lies tucked away down a quiet lane on the south side of the village. For centuries men and women have worshipped and celebrated here and we continue to build on that rich heritage.

St Mary the Virgin with St John

St Mary the Virgin with St John

Great Brington, GB

The church dates from around 1300 but it is the intervention of the Spencer family of nearby Althorp that transformed the medieval building. Sir John Spencer (d1522) rebuilt the chancel and commenced the funerary chapel that lies adjacent to it. Further intervention of both church and chapel was carried out by Edward Bloor in 1840s.

St Mary Undercroft

St Mary Undercroft

Westminster, GB

The Chapel of St Mary Undercroft was completed by King Edward I in 1297, further developed under Edward II, and finally completed by Edward III in around 1365.

St Mary with St Gabriel

Binbrook, GB

Two churches are recorded at Binbrook in Domesday, these most likely being the former churches of St Mary and St Gabriel. Just a few hundred yards from one another, this may have happened if there were two principal landowners and each built a church.

St Mary Woolnoth

St Mary Woolnoth

City of London, GB

On Easter Day 1727 St Mary Woolnoth of the nativity was reopened after it's rebuilding by Nicholas Hawksmoor. It is the only church he built in the City of London. The rebuilding had taken 12 years, paid for from the proceeds of the tax on sea borne coal.

St Marylebone

St Marylebone

Marylebone, GB

St Marylebone parish church is the UK's grandest Regency parish church just metres from Madame Tussaud's and Britain's favourite high street. We are home to the internationally acclaimed Healing and Counselling Centre and the Marylebone Health Centre (NHS) and famed for our many historical connections and world class music. One five star reviewer wrote: As a parish church this one is quite breath taking and the fact that it is set in it's own grounds gives a little more kudos. It's nice just to sit in the grounds on a sunny day, particularly at lunchtime when it fills up with local office workers.

St Matthew

St Matthew

Ashford, GB

The first mention of a place of worship in Ashford is given in a record in the reign of King Edward I, dated 1293, granting a dispensation of taxes during the time of the Crusades. This ancient chapel, dedicated to St Michael, was some 50 yards from the east window of the present church. From Saxon times until the middle of the 19th century St Michael's Chapel was a 'daughter church' of St Mary's, Staines.

St Matthew

St Matthew

Kingsley, GB

The creation of this outstanding late Victorian Gothic church was made possible by its patron the local brewer Pickering Phipps, the local architect Matthew Henry Holding and its first incumbent the Revd JR Hussey. It went up remarkably quickly between 1893-5 and with its fine tower topped by a steeple remains a significant land mark in this part of the town.

St Michael

St Michael

Cambridge, GB

An ancient church building with its roots in the 11th Century, years of fascinating history and now a vibrant cafe and community centre with a contemporary feel. How did all that happen?
