St Mary's Church, Cusop, is open all day every day and we warmly welcome visitors!

Features of the original Norman Church can still be seen. There is Norman carving on the chancel arch and the small window to the west side of the main door is Norman. The north door is blocked but can easily be seen from outside, at the back of the church. There was once a rood loft and screen, in front of the chancel arch, but all that remains is the built-in doorway above the war memorial.

The font may date as far back as the 14th century. It is made of a single massive stone decorated with saltire crosses.The roof of the church was constructed in the 14th century. In 1961 a new bellcote was erected with six new bells. In the year 2000 a new Millennium window was designed by Nicola Hopwood and installed in the east window.

For over 15 years, we have followed the guidelines of "Caring for God's Acre" and managed our churchyard so we encourage a wide range of plant species, fungi, lichen, insects, and mammals. Stoats, hedgehogs and slow worms are amongst the animals that inhabit our churchyard as well as numerous types of birds and invertebrates. We have a band of wonderful local volunteers who regularly work in the churchyard on our special Taskforce Days.
