St Mary's Church, Wythall
St Mary's Church, Wythall
The elaborate tower of St Mary's is a prominent local landmark. It was added in 1908 as a gift of the Misses Mynors in memory of their parents. It is described as being finished with a gable roof and timber flèche, as seen in many churches in northern and eastern France and consists of two stages rising above the nave roof, a ringing chamber and an open belfry. For more details of the history of this unusual building see LinkExternal link.

The church building is now redundant and the van and the cable drums are evidence that it is now owned by a firm of electrical contractors. The building is Grade II listed and the current owners have maintained the major internal features and repaired the structure of the building.

St Mary's congregation now meet in Coppice Primary School in nearby Hollywood.
