St Mary’s Church, Studley Royal Stockists

St Mary's Church is William Burges’s ecclesiastical masterpiece. It was built in the 1870s for the Marquis and Marchioness for Ripon. Its towering spire rises like that of a small cathedral on the Studley Royal estate. The church now only in occasional liturgical use is a memorial to William Burges’s devotion to Early English architecture and his artistic love of imagery. It is preserved in the guardianship of English Heritage and is managed by the National Trust.
