Whalley parish church

The parish of Whalley is one of the most ancient in England, and at one time said to be the second largest in area. The parish church of St Mary and All Saints dates largely from the 13th century, with a 15th century tower and later alterations and additions c.1909. There are of course many connections with the nearby Whalley Abbey - the church contains many of the medieval misericords from the abbey. It is also notable for its fine interior woodwork, and stained glass windows by Burne-Jones and Whall.

Grade 1 listed (list entry number 1164684).
