Charlton Marshall: St Mary the Virgin

You are certain of a warm welcome at St Mary The Virgin Church, Charlton Marshall whether you are a local parishioner or just visiting the area. We hold regular family friendly services.

St Mary The Virgin is a rare example of an early eighteenth century rural parish church, it is a grade 1 listed building; it includes an earlier late fourteenth century tower with Georgian embellishments, and a (largely) sympathetic Victorian refurbishment in 1895. It is a gem. An unusual feature is the "stocks" outside the entrance but don't let that put you off as you will be warmly received inside.

It is located on the banks of the River Stour and lies one mile equidistant from Spetisbury and Blandford St Mary churches.
