The Church of St Mary the Virgin is a church in Walsgrave, in the City of Coventry in the West Midlands of England. The building is grade II* listed, though churches in ecclesiastical use are exempt from listed building procedures.

The church was originally built in 1300, with additions made in the medieval period, and in the 19th and 20th centuries. The original building was composed of local red sandstone, with grey sandstone being added later on. The tower was added in the 15th century. No visible trace of the original church building can be seen in the current structure, and it is possible that the church was completely rebuilt later in the 13th or 14th centuries. Medieval fabrics in the church are particularly of historical interest, as are the 14th-century windows, and other medieval fittings.[1]
