St Mary's Church, Temple Balsall is a parish church in the Church of England in Temple Balsall, Solihull, West Midlands, England.

History[edit]

The church is of 13th century style but was heavily restored by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1849.[1] The church is a Grade I listed building.[2][3]

It is thought that the church was built by the Knights Templar and is the Mother Church of the Templars and the Knight Hospitallers. Knights of both Orders are illustrated in the Altar window.[3]

Organ[edit]

The church has a small pipe organ by Porritt of Leicester. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.[4]
