St Mary's Parish Church, Cheadle :: Shared Description

The Parish Church of St Mary's, Cheadle is a Grade I listed building LinkExternal link A church has been on this site since at least 1200, but the present church was built mainly between 1520 and 1550. The south chapel was completed in 1530, the nave in 1541, and the tower was built between 1520 and 1540. The chancel was built between 1556 and 1558 for Lady Katheryn Bulkeley. The south porch is dated 1634, but this was the date it was repaired rather than the date of its building. The church was rebuilt and restored between 1859 and 1862, and there was a further restoration by J. Medland Taylor in 187880.

New tower clocks were installed in 1988, and each of the east, south and west faces of the clock has a different 12-character motto. The tower was finally refurbished in 1992 after the installation of the bellringers' platform.
