The Anglican church of St Mary’s was the religious masterpiece of architect William Burges.

The richly decorated Victorian Gothic church was commissioned in 1870 by the first Marquess and Marchioness of Ripon to commemorate the Marchioness’ brother who had been allegedly murdered in Greece.

Look out for the brightly coloured parrots carved into the wood inside the church.
