Gate Church (St Mark's Church).jpg

Join us in our café space for FREE coffee and cakes, shop for locally produced goods at our Craft Fair and take a tour of historic St Marks Church.

St Mark’s Church was built between 1868 and 1869. It was designed by Pilkington and Bell in a free Gothic style typical of Frederick T Pilkington. The church was extended in 1879 by Ireland and MacLaren. Featuring superb stained-glass windows and a raised
timbre ceiling, this A-listed church is a unique example of circular congregational seating and aisles.

An ambitious energy efficiency project, grant-assisted by Climate Challenge Fund, is currently under-way, you can see the progress of this work during your visit.
