St Mary's Church is a Grade I listed[1] church in Tickhill, South Yorkshire, England. Dating from the early 12th century and built with local magnesian limestone the structure today is predominantly of Perpendicular style with glimpses of earlier Norman, Early English and Decorated styles.

The Organ[edit]

The organ was originally built in 1857 by Charles Brindley (Sheffield). One of his earliest organs, the influence of Edmund Schulze - whom Brindley met at the Great Exhibition of 1851 - is clear notably in the complete Diapason chorus.

The current organ is the result of several major rebuilds and regular additions most recently the Double Trumpet in 2007.
