St Mary's Church, Hanley Castle

Recent Photograph of St Mary's Church (Hanley Castle)

An attractive setting, except perhaps for the High School to the east, sheltered thankfully by trees.

The church has a medieval nave and north aisle, the rest was rebuilt in Gothic (and brick) in the later 17th century after the central tower was brought down during the English Civil War. This all sounds quite interesting but I found the church rather dull in part thanks to a 19th century going over of the 17th century features. Not much else to comment on, minor fittings and a couple of memorials.
