Thornton-le-Moors War Memorial and St Mary's Church
St Mary's Church is a redundant Anglican church in the small village of Thornton-le-Moors.

The nave, chancel and south aisle of the present church, is built in red sandstone with slate roofs, date from the 14th century as does the south door. A chapel, the Elton Chapel, was added in the 16th century. The tower also dates from this time; it was damaged by fire in 1909 and was largely rebuilt in 1910. The church closed in 2002 and was vested in the Churches Conservation Trust in September 2009.

The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 55431 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings), and it is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust LinkExternal link .

This stone column in the grounds of the church is inscribed with the names those of Thornton-le-Moors who fell in the first and second world wars. (See Carl’s cam LinkExternal link for a list of names and details of the dedication).
