The spire of St Mary’s is one of the tallest in England and for over 500 years it has dominated Shrewsbury’s skyline. You will find St. Marys Church on St Mary’s Street, a short walk from Pride Hill and The Parade shopping centre.
The church is now the only complete Medieval church in Shrewsbury. There is a memorial at St Mary’s Church to local steeplejack Robert Cadman who fell to his death in 1739 whilst performing balancing tricks on ropes suspended from the spire.
The church dates from Saxon times and is renowned for its world-famous 14th-century 'Jesse window’ filled with figures of Old Testament kings and prophets, and scenes from the life of St Bernard. As the Churches Conservation Trust say, “No other church in the country has a collection to equal it.”
See the Victorian coloured tiles on the floor and the 15th-century carved oak ceiling of the nave, the ancient font, medieval stone carving on the arcades and interesting monuments.
