St Mary's Catholic Church

The current church at St Mary’s was blessed and opened on 2nd July 1893. It replaced the first St Mary’s – a small wooden church built on the site of the present car park around 1864. Designed by architects George Simkin and John Ibler and built by Woollam and Norman between from 1892 to 1929
The style of the church, which combines Romanesque and Renaissance revival elements, was not common at the time as most nineteenth century churches were designed in the Gothic revival style.
