Nether Alderley Church
St Mary's Church, Nether Alderley, is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building (LinkExternal link National Heritage List for England).

The oldest parts of the church date from around 1300, but it is likely that a timber-framed church existed on the site before then. The church's original dedication was to Saint Lawrence, but that was later changed to Saint Mary.

The church was constructed using ashlar buff and red sandstone quarried locally at Alderley Edge. It has a typical 14th century ground plan which consisted of a broad nave and two side aisles. As is typical with other churches in Cheshire the clerestory was added approximately 150 years later and the tower was built in 1530.
