The war memorial and the distinctive octagonal tower of the church. I get the impression that this specific view of the church is no longer available because of the way trees have grown up since.
Church of St Mary, Nantwich

The parish church of St Mary, with its unusual octagonal tower, is one of the best known in Cheshire. The walls, and some of the woodwork in the choir, date mainly from the 15th century; the nave fittings are mainly 19th century by George Gilbert Scott (or his firm) and most of the stained glass is 19th or 20th century. It is Grade 1 listed (list entry 1206059).

The church follows the evangelical style of Anglicanism and I was impressed to be told by the volunteer guide that it has a congregation of over 500.

Most of the detailed notes in the photos in this collection are from the official publication "A guided walk around St Mary's Nantwich" (Rick Appleton, 2013) - available from the church, price 1.
