Newmarket St Mary’s church
Newmarket St Mary’s church
St Mary’s is one of those churches that were stripped of everything, including its character, during the period of Victorian restoration. It is surrounded by other buildings and is unable to show anything except its delicate spire above the rooftops. The destruction started in 1856 when the chancel was rebuilt. The following year a north window was inserted into the chancel. The old galleries were replaced by a new one running the length of the nave. In 1868 the north transept was converted into an aisle and a vestry was added to the north of the chancel. During this period of dissatisfaction with everything, many of the windows were also replaced with ‘modern’ Victorian versions. The church, unfortunately, has been left with nothing to interest or appeal to the visitor.
