St. Mary’s has some good Victorian stained glass, most notably the East Window, whose
nine panels depict the life of Christ starting with The Annunciation (bottom left)
and concluding with the Descent from the Cross (top right). The window is dedicated
to the memory of Lamplugh W Wickham of Chestnut Grove who was a great benefactor
to our church.
The first church to be built on this site in the early 19th Century was designated
a “Chapel of Ease”within the ancient parish of Bramham. In 1851 it was Considerably
enlarged and in the following year became a Parish Church Instead of a “Chapelry”.
Work commenced on the present Church in 1872 and was finally completed in 1884.
