History[edit]

The Victorian building was constructed in 1843 by George Rowe, to which the Price family monuments were transferred. The three bay arcade was of 15th century origin, and the west tower from a century before. There was a south transept of one bay's width on the west aisle. St Mary's is a redundant Anglican church, designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building, and is under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.[2][3] To the south lie the ruins of Old Yazor church.
