The first Bishop of Lincoln to live at Riseholme Hall was John Kaye and he had the 14th century style church of St Mary's built at his own expense to a design by S.S. Teulon. The foundation stone was laid by Bishop Kaye on 4th April 1851. The church consists of a nave with gabled western bellcote, a gabled south porch, a vestry and a chancel. St Mary's is built of local stone and the architecture is early Decorated period. All the woodwork is English oak and the font is of stone from Caen. The chancel arch is in a 13th century style and the chancel floor is Victorian encaustic tiles.
