The Parish Church of St Mary, Radcliffe is a church in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester. It was built during the 14th century, but the tower was not added until the 15th century. The church was designated a Grade I listed building by English Heritage in 1966, under its former name of the Church of St Mary and St Bartholomew.[1] In 1991, some local parishes were merged, and the church adopted its present name.[2]

The church roof was restored in 2008–9, at a cost of £250,000.[3]

The churchyard contains the war graves of six soldiers of World War I and three of World War II.[4]
