Tetburys jewel in the crown. Beautiful stained glass, plenty of information and the History of Tetbury (HOTS) has a lot of information displayed in the church. Lost a point from me because the Rude Screen has been removed...sad in a building of this stature.

This place is amazing, it's like a cathedral, lovely stained glass windows, well maintained, it has a n old fashioned cemetery surrounding it. I would recommend.

A jewel of a church with some very interesting and unusual architectural details. A haven of quiet for those who are unafraid of such places.

St Mary's is a classic Georgian church of great beauty and serenity. The nave columns are unbelievably slender and the original box pews, with access from the ambulatories on the North and South sides, are of interest; so often "modernisation" strips out these historical gems....More
