St. Mary's Church, Richmond

St. Mary

An historic building at the heart of Richmond. The first church was built on the site in 1220 but the entire building was rebuilt between 1487 and 1506 when Henry VII of Yorkshire took the throne. 

When inside, have a look at the new stained glass windows on the south nave wall, in particular that in memory of Ruth Gedye who died aged just 18. There is much detail to be found within its swathes of colour.
