Summary Description

The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire, is a Grade 1 listed church, dating back in some detail to the 12th century. Thornbury is a historic market town and borough, with a charter dating from 1252. Present day Thornbury is largely a commuter town for the nearby city of Bristol. Christian worship has taken place at the site now occupied by St Mary’s Church since 1170. The building was altered in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. The last full restoration was in 1848 by Francis Niblett.
