Church of Saint Mary

Roman Catholic Church with adjoining graveyard

A freestanding symmetrical single-cell Roman Catholic barn-type church, built 1837 within a decade of Catholic Emancipation, likely replacing an earlier church as indicated by its isolated setting down a long drive and by a plaque commemorating a former school nearby. Despite remodellings, the church retains its barn-style proportions and a c.1900 reredos but no other historic detail survive. The round-headed stained glass windows appears to be from elsewhere and inserted into the pointed-arched window openings. The church has a connection to Irish novelist William Carelton (1794 - 1869).
