This is a Grade 2 listed church, designed and built in 1855 by the eminent Victorian architect, William Butterfield, and consecrated in 1857.
The church has recently undergone restorative work to the exterior stonework and has had a makeover of the narthex area with the help of a National Lottery Fund Award.
You can see the Art Group using Hooky Mat technique on their new piece of Nativity artwork, and hear the story of the design and creation of the tapestries celebrating our patron saint, Mary Magdalene. Try using the technique yourself!
The nave pews and the inner porch are the work of Robert (Mouseman) Thompson (7 May 1876 – 8 December 1955).
