“Stained glass windows in every direction”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

A large, airy church with many very large stained glass windows varying from very old to quite recent. There is a unique massive hanging tapestry which was made by local ladies for the Queen's silver jubilee in 1977. It is am amazing sight!

“A wonderful piece of History”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Full of interesting nooks and crannies with superb stained glass windows. Dates back hundreds of years and still maintains an air of tranquility and sanctuary. Volunteers are on hand to help with any questions and they are justifiably proud of the church.

“St Mary's Church, Nantwich”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

A wonderful, historic church - sometimes referred to the as the "Cathedral of South Cheshire". It has a long and chequered history - being used as a hospital during the civil wars. The 16C "Bread Chest" from which bread was distributed to the poor. If in Nantwich definitely worth a visit.

“An inspiring church”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Whilst camping at Delamere we found ourselves with time on our hands and were not sure how to fill it. Having not been to Nantwich for many years we decided to drive in and see what the town had to offer. Car parking on Snow Hill OK for a short stay £1 for an hour £2.10 for between 2 and 3 hours and free after 3 pm. We walked to the church which stands in a pretty square amongst the shops some of which are black and white Tudor. The church is impressive inside with a pretty roof, absolutely stunning misericords and carpentry work above the choir stalls. A quiet place where you could go for a quiet moment. Pretty stained glass including a very modern one depicting Cheshire farming life. Free to visit but donations welcome. A very knowledgeable guide was on duty the day we called in.
