St Mary's Church and Churchyard before the arson

Westry is a village in Cambridgeshire, England.[1] It lies to the northwest of March on the A141 to Wisbech.

The Church of St Mary was erected in 1873 to a design by Thomas Henry Wyatt. It is a Grade II listed building.[2] The church was gutted by fire in an arson attack on 15 March 2010[3] but reopened in 2014 after its insurers paid for a £2.2m renovation.[4]
