The Parish Church of St Mary, Radcliffe
The Parish Church of St Mary, Radcliffe
This old church, currently undergoing restoration work, is a grade I listed building.

A church has existed on the present site for over 1000 years, since Saxon times and the church structure has been adapted and modified over the years.

The oldest part of the church still in existence today is thought to be The Nave, built in the early 15th century by James de Radcliffe, the Lord of the Manor at the time. The Tower was rebuilt in 1665, and some of the original features were incorporated in the new tower during the rebuilding. The original clock (which has two faces) was fitted in 1785. In 1908, the present clock was fitted, and one of the old clock faces now forms part of the pavement outside the vestry door.
