SO6302 : Parish church of St Mary's, Lydney

taken 8 years ago, near to Lydney, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Parish church of St Mary's, Lydney
Parish church of St Mary's, Lydney
Viewed from Church Road, looking north.

I am grateful to a correspondent who informed me that a leaflet inside the church states that the spire rises to 197 feet. This is the tallest structure in Lydney and is a landmark visible from much of the town and beyond.

There may have been a church of some description on this site since Saxon times.
The tower dates from the 13th century. The spire was a later addition, and was rebuilt in the late 19th century after part of it collapsed.
