History of St Mary the Virgin, Richmond, Yorkshire

There has been a church at this site since at least 1137, and some of these early Norman features, including to magnificent pillars near the west door, still exist.  In 1399 the tower was added.  St Mary’s has been extensively modified over the centuries, which has lead to a varied set of styles ranging from Norman though perpendicular.

As per normal, the reformation and Commonwealth periods were  not kind to St Mary’s, with the stained glass and statues being removed and destroyed.

By the mid-19th century, the fabric of the church  was in a parlous state, so Sir George Gilbert Scott was called in to carry out a full restoration, this included adding 3 galleries, which have since been removed, these galleries increased the seating capacity to over 1000!  One of Britain’s finest parish church organs was installed at this time, it has since been restored in 2003.

The misericords date from 1515 and are placed on either side of the Choir, which originated in Easby Abbey.
