St Mary the Virgin's Church, Fairford (The Porch)

Recent Photograph of St Mary the Virgin's Church (The Porch) (Fairford)

The statue niche above the south porch contains an effigy of St Mary the Virgin, to whom the church is dedicated. The main part of the building, in late Perpendicular style dates from the late 15th century. It was built to this lavish design under the direction of John TAME, a Cirencester wool merchant, and remains virtually unchanged to this day.

Opposite the entrance to the church is a memorial to ‘Tiddles’, the Church Cat - 1963-1980.
