St Mary

Welcome to St Mary Knaith.

Described as "odd but delightful" with stunning views of the River Trent. St Mary's curious appearance reflects an intriguing and calamitous history. The church dates from around the 12th century and has interesting features including a superb Gothic font, fine Jacobean pulpit with tester, charmingly rustic medieval pew ends, and an unusual altar Baldacchino.
