Church of St Mary including Beauchamp Chapel, Warwick - Warwick

This parish church was founded as a Collegiate Church in 1123. The nave, aisles, transept and tower were rebuilt by Sir W Wilson after the great fire of 1694, although the chancel dating from the C14 remained. The Beauchamp Chapel is an excellent example of Perpendicular design. The church has fan vaulted ceilings and stone carvings. St Mary's has undergone much repair in recent years but the stonework is soft Arden stone and the tower requires urgent repair as it suffers from falling masonry. The congregation are exploring sources of funding for the repairs.
