WHISTON ST MARY MAGDELENE

Glorious green men & gargoylesSpectacular stained glassInteresting churchyardInterpretation of site available

Our lovely church has stood above the village of Whiston for over 800 years.

The church that you can see today is a combination of the original Norman building; the major redevelopment during the Victorian era by John Oldrid Scott; and a re-ordering that took place in the 1990s, to give the church more modern facilities.

Things to see also include the tower (1250) with a ring of eight bells, two of which are medieval (c1468); and Victorian stained glass by Kempe.

The churchyard is extensive, and includes a number of interesting gravestones.

If you know anything more about the heritage of this site and would like us to include it here please contact us.
