I am still sorting through photos and I have found several churches that somehow, I have managed to miss, so I am starting which the beautiful church of St Mary’s in the market town of Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. We were just passing through Tadcaster, when I noticed the open sign outside of the church. Now, no church can been passed if there is a sign welcoming you to visit, it’s a rule that you just have to adhere to. So many churches are locked nowadays, so its lovely when one invites you in and I’m so glad we stopped, this is a beautiful church, with some wonderful stained glass window.
The church dates from the 15th century making it the oldest church in the town. It is of a perpendicular style with pinnacles. The church was taken down in 1875-77, re-erected and raised 4 feet (1.25 metres) to safeguard it from floods. The church was Grade II listed on 12 July 1985. The architectural style is perpendicular and built out of magnesian limestone with Welsh slate roof. The church has a three-stage west tower, a three-stage bay aisled nave, south porch and a two-bay aisled chancel. I am just going to let the photos show you how beautiful the building is. I have added a few photos of Tadcaster at the end of the post.
