St Mary's Church, Bishopstoke

The Church of St Mary's is an Anglican Church in Bishopstoke, Hampshire.

St Mary’s was designed by Edward Prioleau Warren and built during 1890/91 by Wheeler Bros. of Reading, Berkshire at a cost of £4,200.

It was consecrated on 12 November 1891 by the Bishop of Guildford. Financial limitations meant that a Perpendicular tower included in the design had to be added later and this was completed in 1909.

This church replaced an earlier building called St Mary's Church which stood on a different site nearer to the River Itchen, (at 50°58′20″N 1°20′21″W / 50.97224°N 1.33923°W / 50.97224; -1.33923). It had been rebuilt in 1825, but by 1908 had been completely demolished.[1]
