St Mary's Church is in the village of Conistone, North Yorkshire, England. It is an active Anglican parish church in the deanery of Skipton, the archdeaconry of Craven and the Diocese of Leeds. The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.
The church was built in the 11th or 12th century. In 1846 the chancel was added and the nave and aisle were rebuilt under the supervision of the Lancaster architects Sharpe and Paley, who maintained its original Norman style of architecture.
St Mary's is constructed in limestone rubble, with gritstone dressings and a stone slate roof. Its plan consists of a five-bay nave with a north aisle and a south porch, and a three-bay chancel with a north vestry. On the west gable of the nave is a double bellcote. The east window has three lights. Internally there is an arcade between the nave and the north aisle. The two western arches of the arcade date from the early Norman period, and the two eastern arches are from the 14th century. The bowl of the font is also possibly Norman.
