St Mary de Crypt Church, Southgate Street, Gloucester
The church seen looking north along Southgate Street, with the Old Crypt Schoolroom beyond. The church was first recorded c1140 when it was known as the Church of the Blessed Mary within the Southgate. The present structure is the result of a major rebuilding that took place in the late 14th century. It incorporated some of the earlier 12th and 13th century work. Further alterations took place in the 15th and 16th centuries. Below the western end of the nave lies the crypt alluded to in the name of the church.

Gloucester's famous 18th century preacher, George Whitefield delivered his first sermon after ordination in 1734 from the 17th century pulpit in the nave. See also LinkExternal link
