St Mary’s Nantwich

The Parish Church of St. Mary, Nantwich (1)

St Mary’s church is well worth a visit. The church is situated in the centre of Nantwich and has been described as “The Cathedral of South Cheshire”.

The building was started around 1340 (replacing a chapel of ease). Building the church took over a hundred years to complete, with delays caused by the Black Death. When the building was started, the building was in the Decorated style, but later changed to the Perpendicular style.
